WASHINGTON – The National Republican Congressional Committee released a broadcast television ad in Wilmington today that highlights Congressman Mike McIntyre’s reckless disregard for your tax dollars. He’s voted against balanced budgets that would create jobs and restore fiscal sanity, all while wasting taxpayer dollars on cars, 5-star hotels, and a pay increase for himself.
“Mike McIntyre is exactly what’s wrong with Washington today,” said NRCC spokeswoman Katie Prill. “McIntyre has changed. Instead of looking out for taxpayers and their hard-earned money, he’s only looking out for himself.”
