House Dems line up TV ad buys for fall races

WASHINGTON The advertising strategy comes in the face of a strong challenge by Republicans and an anti-incumbent bent among voters.

Advertising plans reviewed by The Associated Press show the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reserving ad time to defend seats served by fellow lawmakers who were retiring, seeking /*Senate*/ seats or among the most unlikely freshmen to win re-election.

The ad reservations bring the total number of House districts that party strategists are willing to discuss publicly to 60. The /*GOP*/ needs to gain 40 seats to capture control of the House.
