Republican Congressman Peter King responded to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee radio ad in a taped video statement released yesterday.
In the video, the New York representative accuses "Democratic hacks" of "ganging up" on him and says "people are out to get me." He also touts an upcoming fundraiser, a modest affair, he suggests. "Nothing fancy."
"We're going to beat back the Democratic hacks that are coming after to me and the real Democrats, the real people and you will stand with me," King says in the grainy video.
King is one of six House Republicans the DCCC began targeting recently with radio ads and robocalls criticizing their opposition to the Democratic-backed stimulus package.
The news today that Rep. John McHugh will become Army secretary could make King potentially one of only two Republicans left in the New York congressional delegation.
