Anti-impeachment ads target Maloney, Delgado

Reps. Sean Patrick Maloney and Antonio Delgado were among 37 House Democrats targeted by digital ads this week by a conservative group opposed to the impeachment of President Trump.

The American Action Network says it spent $2 million on the ads, which coincided with the start of televised impeachment hearings on Wednesday and enable like-minded readers to email their representatives with a click. The message urges the House member to “work on issues we care about” and dismisses the inquiry as a “partisan charade.”

The targets are Democrats whose congressional districts Trump won in the 2016 election. Every House Democrat except two voted in favor of the impeachment inquiry and its rules two weeks ago, and every Republican voted against it.

Maloney, a fourth-term member whose 18th District Trump won by two points, is on the committee that’s holding the hearings and has been on cable news shows to discuss the alleged abuse of power in the inquiry. He told supporters in a fundraising email Wednesday night that he was “already facing an onslaught of Republican attacks for standing up for our democracy,” and that “Republicans are spending in my district to try to stop us from getting to the truth.”
