Dems to run TV ads targeting Diaz-Balarts, Ros-Lehtinen

Democrats looking to grow their majority in the House have reserved $1.4 million worth of TV air time in the Miami market, looking to run ads this fall against Reps. Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

The ad buys come on the heels of word that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved $1 million in the Orlando market for ads to take on Rep. Tom Feeney, R-Oviedo, and $1.5 million in the Palm Beach County area to bolster the case for Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-Palm Beach Gardens, a top GOP target.

Democrats believe they have their best shot in years at taking out the Diaz-Balarts and Ros-Lehtinen. No word yet on when the ads will run.
