Sacto 911: Democrats target Denham, Valadao in robocalls

Published: Tuesday, Sep. 17, 2013 - 2:25 pm

Democrats today are launching a flurry of robocalls charging two Republican San Joaquin Valley congressmen with contemplating shutting down the government and withholding financial support to implement the new federal health care law.

The automated calls targeting Reps. Jeff Denham, R-Turlock, and David Valadao, R-Hanford, implore the recipients to ask their representatives to "stop the nonsense and focus on common sense solutions that protect our health care and grow our economy."

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's paid effort continues through the end of the week and mirrors a nationwide attempt to target vulnerable incumbents. The calls come as top Democrats in Washington predict a protracted fight to avert a partial government shutdown come Oct. 1.
