The Koch Brothers plan to expand the 2014 map

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2014/02/19/how-a-top-koch-group-will-try-to-expand-the-2014-map/

Up to eight Senate Democrats could find themselves under attack by Americans for Prosperity this election cycle, as the advocacy group looks to maximize negative reaction to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act ahead of the 2014 midterms.

“We want to hold accountable six to eight senators,” AFP President Tim Phillips said in an interview. “When a senator is facing re-election, it does focus them on their voting record and it does make them more attentive to how each individual vote impacts their political future.”

Phillips's group, backed by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, has already spent the bulk of $30 million this cycle targeting both incumbent House and Senate Democrats in vulnerable seats on their past support for Obamacare.

So far, five incumbent senators have seen ads run in their states that seek to tie them to the president’s signature law: Democrats Kay Hagan (N.C.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Mark Begich (Alaska) and Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.). Phillips said the unpopularity of the Affordable Care Act could put races in Virginia, Colorado and Minnesota in play. AFP has also run ads against Democratic challengers in races for open Senate seats in Michigan and Iowa.

1. They've been running a lying anti-Obamacare, anti-Mark Pryor ad about

a dozen times a day here. Started a 3 week long campaign on Feb. 4. I hate the ad because it's a soft spoken woman spewing lies.
