The Democratic National Committee announced it will begin running ads Thursday praising House Democrats who voted for the health care reform bill and calling out Republicans who opposed it.
The ads -- 25 on television and 10 on radio -- will run in markets across the country, the DNC said in an e-mailed statement.
The "Hands Off Our Health Care" radio campaign goes after 10 GOP members of Congress who are working to repeal the reform bill President Obama signed into law Tuesday. The ads are tailored for specific Republicans and criticize each for voting "against ending discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, against reining in premiums, against lowering drug costs for seniors, against tax credits for small businesses.
The Republicans targeted by the "Hands Off Our Health Care" ads are: Dan Lungren and Mary Bono Mack of California, Mike Castle of Delaware, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Joseph Cao of Louisiana, Lee Terry of Nebraska, Pat Tiberi of Ohio, Jim Gerlach and Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania and Dave Reichert of Washington.

A separate campaign, dubbed "You Fight, We Fight," features television ads dedicated to providing political and financial support to Democrats who supported reform. Those ads thank Democrats in Congress for "providing quality, affordable health care options to individuals and small business owners. And closing the Medicare prescription gap."
