New radio ad targets Bono Mack’s budget vote

In a continued effort to target Rep. Mary Bono Mack, national Democrats launched another radio ad campaign today that points out herĀ support of a Republican budget plan

The short ad is paid for by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and it echoes their earlier criticism that Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan will prioritize “millionaires over Medicare.”

Both Bono Mack, a Palm Springs Republican, and Rep. Jerry Lewis, a Redlands Republican who represents Desert Hot Springs, on Thursday joined their GOP colleagues in the House to pass Ryan’s plan.

The bill restructures Medicare, cuts federal spending and revises the individual and corporate tax codes.

Both Bono Mack and Lewis endorsed a similar Ryan budget plan last year.

Bono Mack is being challenged by Democrat Raul Ruiz in the new 36th Congressional Distirct.

It is one of eight districts nationwide where the DCCC is airing the new radio ad.
