With a floor vote expected soon on the proposed GOP tax overhaul, California's House Republicans are the target of several ad campaigns highlighting the changes that could hit Californians hardest.
Red to Blue California, a PAC seeking to unseat seven vulnerable GOP lawmakers, began running digital ads Monday casting the tax bill as "billionaire tax cuts" and urging voters to on call their members of Congress to oppose the plan.
The group said the ads will reach about 250,000 people in each of the seven GOP-held districts where Hillary Clinton won last year.
Those seats are currently held by Reps. Jeff Denham, David Valadao, Steve Knight, Ed Royce, Mimi Walters, Dana Rohrabacher and Darrell Issa.
A separate group, Americans Against Double Taxation, launched a nationwide radio ad campaign Friday targeting several Republicans in California, calling the tax bill "a scam that double-taxes the middle class and explodes the deficit."
A third PAC, Fight Back California, has been running digital ads over the last week, targeting about 30,000 voters in each of the seven districts and focusing primarily on homeowners.
Unlike their counterparts in states such as New York and New Jersey, California Republicans haven't put up much of a fight against the tax bill and the possible elimination of these popular tax deductions. So far, Issa (R-Vista) is the only Republican of the California delegation to come out against the House bill.
The changes to the mortgage interest deduction would especially affect California homeowners.
