Heidi Heitkamp: AdWatch: Featured in DSCC ad: "Elect more women to Senate"

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is taking advantage of the controversy over contraception and women's health issues to feature its female office-seekers. A new ad from the DSCC accuses male Republican candidates for Senate of perpetrating an "assault on women's health and freedom" and focusing on social rather than economic issues. [Heidi Hietkamp is featured in the DSCC ad, which says]:

"It's time to end the culture wars and get to work for the middle class. Time to elect more women to the U.S. Senate," a female narrator says, followed by clips of 11 female Democratic challengers and incumbents up for reelection endorsing the ad. "Send a Democratic woman to the Senate," the commercial's text reads under portraits of the women. "Send them all."
