DNC attacking Democrats

harry reidSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid

blasted the Democratic National Committee Thursday for its decision to run ads against Democratic senators concerned about President Obama’s health plan.

On Wednesday, the DNC’s “Organizing for America” committee — President Barack Obama’s campaign-in-waiting — announced that it would begin running ads in the home states of Democrats like Byron Dorgan of North Dakota, who has expressed concern about the cost of the legislation.

Asked about the ads, Reid responded: “It’s a waste of money.”

When a reporter pressed Reid on the matter, he said: “It’s a waste of money to run ads from Democrats against Democrats.”

Reid said he hadn’t seen the ads himself.

However, after the news conference, a Reid spokesman said Reid was not aware at the time he was answering the question that the ads do not mention the Democratic senators by name and are also running in the states of Republicans.

It’s “an effort he has no problem with,” said Reid spokesman Rodell Mollineau.

The ads are running on national cable stations and on local networks in Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio — states home to centrist-minded Democrats and Republicans
