House GOP Revamps TV Ad Campaign Plans
House GOP Revamps TV Ad Campaign Plans

WASHINGTON -- House Republicans are scaling back television advertising reserved for four Democratic-held seats in Ohio, South Carolina and West Virginia, officials said Wednesday, fresh evidence of the party's struggles as it tries to retain its majority.

At the same time, GOP strategists signaled they intend to spend nearly $1 million in an attempt to hold the seat recently vacated by Rep. Mark Foley. The Florida Republican quit Congress last month after being confronted with sexually explicit computer messages he sent to teenage male pages.

Democrats, who must gain 15 seats to win House control, said the moves were evidence that time was running out on the GOP majority. "The fact is, defending a failed economy for the middle class and the disaster in Iraq was always going to be too expensive a proposition for Republicans," said Bill Burton, a Democratic spokesman.

Carl Forti, a spokesman for House Republicans, countered, "We'll find out who's winning on election day."
