The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is paying for automated telephone calls into New Jersey's third district criticizing freshman U.S. Rep. John Adler (D-Cherry Hill) for supporting President Obama's economic stimulus package.
The script: "In 2008 John Adler promised us he would oppose wasteful spending, but just last week Congressman John Adler has done exactly the opposite. John Adler voted for nearly a trillion dollars in wasteful spending. That's right – one trillion dollars of your money on more than 30 entirely new government programs."
Adler won a 52%-48% victory over Medford Mayor Christopher Myers in 2008, after twelve-term Republican James Saxton retired. Adler is the first Democrat to hold the seat since 1884. Republicans think they can beat Adler in 2008.
