Democrats’ Ads Go After Republicans Who Supported Failed GOP Replacement Plan
Rep. Mimi Walters of Irvine is one target of the ad campaign. "It’s critical that voters in California’s 45th District know where Walters stood on this harmful legislation,” Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján said in a statement.

Democrats Out With Ads Targeting Rep. Mimi Walters For Supporting GOP Healthcare Bill
Republicans didn't vote on their plan to replace the Affordable Care Act on Friday, but Democrats already have ads out criticizing vulnerable GOP House members like Rep. Mimi Walters of Irvine for backing the bill. The Internet ads, paid for by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, will target 14 Republicans who voted for the bill in the House Budget, Ways and Means, and Energy and Commerce committees. The ads will run for at least a week on social media sites, including Facebook and Instagram. (Wire, 3/27)

Even Though It Never Happened, Politicial Group Praises Rep. Darrell Issa For Replacing Obamacare
A political organization recently praised Rep. Darrell Issa in a commercial ad for repealing Obamacare. That’s not exactly what happened. The American Action Network television ad that aired on Friday afternoon asked viewers to “Thank Congressman Darrell Issa for replacing the Affordable Care Act with better health care.” The problem is that Issa and other House members did no such thing. On Friday afternoon, a scheduled vote on a bill that would have replaced the existing system with the Trump administration-backed American Health Care Act was canceled after it became clear that there wasn’t enough support for it to pass.
