Report: Carlos Curbelo target of attack ads over attempted Obamacare repeal

in 2017 by

A progressive health care group has its sights set on Rep. Carlos Curbelo.

According to POLITICO, Save My Care, a coalition of progressive health care advocacy groups, has launched a seven-figure television ad buy in seven competitive House districts across the country, including Curbelo’s South Florida district. The ad campaign, according to POLITICO, targets five Republican lawmakers from districts won by Hillary Clinton.

Aside from Curbelo, the ad campaign will focus on California Republican Darrell Issa, Arizona Republican Martha McSally, Colorado Republican Mike Coffman, and California Republican David Valadao. The campaign will also target Florida Republican Brian Mast and New Jersey Republican Tom MacArthur. President Donald Trump carried both of their districts.

Save My Care, according to its website, brings together families, advocates and health care providers “to protect the health and financial security of all Americans.” The organization hosted a bust tour, traveling to 23 events to discuss why health are matters with people.

Curbelo is considered a moderate Republican who could be vulnerable in the 2018 mid-term election. According to the recent Cook Political Report’s Partisan Voting Index, Curbelo’s district leans six-points toward Democrats. Mast’s district, the report found, leans five-points toward Republicans.
