Cong. OH-15th: Pryce (R) Criticized by MoveOn.org in New TV Ad

As reported in the Columbus Dispatch today, MoveOn.org's political action committee has a new TV ad airing in Ohio's 15th Congressional District attacking incumbent Rep. Deborah Pryce (R-Upper Arlington) over her vote for the Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage law. MoveOn will spend $93,000 in 10 days on the ad. The ad, which can be viewed here, says Pryce "accepted $100,000 from big drug companies ... and got caught red-handed, voting for a law that actually prevents Medicare from negotiating lower drug prices for our seniors."

An earlier MoveOn ad against Pryce on the issue of high gas prices was refused by WCMH-TV (Channel 4). This time MoveOn did not seek to place the ad with WCMH, using other area stations only.

Other Republicans in Congress targeted by MoveOn in recent ads are Nancy L. Johnson (CT), Chris Chocola (IN), and Thelma D. Drake (VA). Pryce is being challenged by Franklin County Commissioner Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Columbus).
