New Democratic super PAC to target swing-district Republicans over vote to overturn election

The Sedition Caucus PAC is launching a TV series promo-style ad campaign next week to target a handful of Republicans in battleground districts, according to plans that were first shared with The Hill. Its first ad targets Rep. Mike Garcia (Calif.), and the group also has plans to run ads against Reps. Scott Perry (Pa.), Richard Hudson (N.C.) and Beth Van Duyne (Texas).

A new Democratic super PAC is taking to the airwaves to target House Republicans in swing districts, including several who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.


The Sedition Caucus PAC is launching a TV series promo-style ad campaign next week to target a handful of Republicans in battleground districts, according to plans that were first shared with The Hill. 

Its first ad targets Rep. Mike Garcia (Calif.), and the group also has plans to run ads against Reps. Scott Perry (Pa.), Richard Hudson (N.C.) and Beth Van Duyne (Texas).

“Our priority is to ensure voters fire members of the Sedition Caucus at the polls in 2022. Republican seditionists and QAnon members of Congress who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 election cannot hide from their attempt to destroy our democracy. Mike Garcia and his fellow seditionists should be worried because we’re watching every vote they take and every statement they make,” said Joe Jacobson, the founder of the Sedition Caucus PAC. 

The ad campaign will hit the lawmakers over their vote to object to the Electoral College results, which the super PAC says helped fuel the Jan. 6 insurrection on Capitol Hill. 

“After they incited an attack on the Capitol and tried to overturn the election, Donald Trump stands trial, while Mike Garcia remains at large,” a narrator says in the ad against Garcia, referring to former President Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial over his role in inciting the riot. “Will Trump be convicted? Will voters hold Garcia accountable? Tune in next time on The Seditionists.”
