LCV Targets Reps Voting 'No' on Climate Bill

"The League of Conservation Voters and its allies this week launched a television campaign attacking two Democrats and one Republican who voted against the climate change bill in committee last week.

The advertising campaign comes on the heels of the long-anticipated committee vote and ahead of what may be a similarly tough fight to get the bill past the House floor. The campaign by LCV and the groups VoteVets.org and America's Building Trades Unions will target Reps. John Barrow (D-Ga.), Mike Ross (D-Ark.) and Roy Blunt (R-Mo.).

The ads will run in each representative's district.

The 30-second spots have a decidedly patriotic theme, opening with images of the American flag and transitioning to images of solar panels and wind turbines."
