In a statement released Monday, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee said would launch a series of online ads in Kentucky, Ohio, and Washington D.C. targeting Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republican House Speaker John Boehner over the looming government shutdown. They aim to have the ads viewed 1 million times.

“The way a government shutdown ends must be that Republicans cave — not that Democrats cave by cutting vital programs like Social Security. With this ad campaign, we’re making sure Republican leaders feel the heat back home,” PCCC co-founder Adam Green said.
