U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston knew she'd get political heat no matter where she landed on the Iran nuclear deal. Now that she has supported it, a conservative group is turning up the temperature.
American Action Network plans two days of digital ads against the Democratic National Committee chairwoman and four other members of Congress criticizing them for their plans to vote yes on the agreement later this week.
"Some in Congress, like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, are ignoring all the warnings and supporting a deal at any price," the ad concludes. "Call Debbie Wasserman Schultz and tell her to stop siding with Iran."
"I am not afraid to make this decision," Wasserman Schultz said last week before revealing her decision. "I am never afraid to stand alone when necessary to stand on principle and based on a thorough review of facts."
The ad buy is for $50,000, or $10,000 per targeted politician, according to AAN. The spots will run before web videos and on Facebook.
The other four Democrats targeted are Reps. Pete Aguilar of California, Rick Nolan of Minnesota, Scott Peters of California and Louise Slaughter of New York.
