The Republicans’ national campaign committee for House candidates has poured $2 million into TV ads, including one picturing Jolly’s opponent next to Obama and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “She’s fighting for them, not for us,” the ad says of Sink.

Sink, formerly the state’s chief financial officer, tries to blunt the criticism in her own ads. One spot says repealing the health care law would “force seniors to pay thousands more for prescription drugs”

“We can’t go back to letting insurance companies do whatever they want,” Sink says in the ad.
