GOP Ramps Up Campaigns Against Ron Barber, Ann Kirkpatrick, Just 18 Months Before Election
With just 18 months and change left until the 2014 election, the National Republican Congressional Committee is heating up its campaigns against Democratic Congressmen Ron Barber and Ann Kirkpatrick.
The NRCC's been actively campaigning against the two since at least April, a whole four months into the two-year term, but they're dropping a bit of cash now that we're getting down to the wire.
New Times has previously pointed out that a couple Dems, Kirkpatrick and Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, were hardly two months into their terms before they were hitting up constituents for re-election cash.

Apparently, "election season" means the time from ancient Greece up until the present, and, for Republicans, railing against the so-called "Obamacare" is still a concern.
That's why Republicans are hitting Kirkpatrick's and Barber's sprawling districts with mobile billboards. It only gets worse, folks (unless you have a fetish for political campaigns, in which case it only gets better).
Per the NRCC, "These Democrats need to be held accountable for their continued support of ObamaCare, especially now that the scandal-ridden IRS has been put in charge of overseeing the health care law's implementation," yadda-yadda-yadda.
