The chairman of House Democrats’ campaign arm said Thursday that the election of Mark Critz (D) in Pennsylvania exposed the Republican “hype” of winning a majority of House seats this fall, affirmed Democratic plans to revive the economy and repudiated an early GOP effort to nationalize the election around President Barack Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
“It’s very clear that the Republicans did a test run of their November strategy in Pennsylvania 12 and that it crashed and failed,” Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chris Van Hollen (Md.) told reporters. “And that’s because at the end of the day, the voters cared more about the issues that were important to them in their daily lives, like jobs and anti-outsourcing, than they were scared by the ads that the Republicans ran trying to create bogeymen out of President Obama and Speaker Pelosi.”
