Conservative group’s ads hit Reps. Barber, Kirkpatrick

PHOENIX — Arizona television viewers will soon know it’s an election year
just by turning on their TV sets.

A conservative group is committing $650,000 to TV ads targeting two Democratic
members of Congress for their support of the president’s health care overhaul
law.

Americans for Prosperity announced Tuesday it was committing the cash for a
three-week campaign targeting Reps. Ron Barber and Ann Kirkpatrick. The tea
party-aligned group gets funding from billionaire industrialists Charles and
David Koch. Americans for Prosperity is also spending big in other races across
the nation.

A spokesman for Kirkpatrick’s re-election campaign said the Congresswoman is focused on
helping veterans while the “out-of-state super-PAC'” is trying to block health
care reform. Barber’s spokesman said he’s remembering Wednesday’s anniversary of
the Tucson mass shooting and criticized the timing of ads.
