GOP Must Be Feeling Pretty Cocky

From the LVRJ:
Republican Assemblyman Cresent Hardy is getting some high-powered, big money help in his uphill battle to defeat freshman U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford.
Crossroads GPS, a conservative group, said Tuesday it has bought $820,000 worth of TV time for ads to start airing Wednesday and run through Election Day on Nov. 4. A source familiar with the ad buy said it is aimed at Horsford, who represents the 4th Congressional District.
Paul Lindsay, communications director for Crossroads GPS, confirmed the group’s eleventh-hour spending plans for the campaign, which could be a game changer, but offered no details.
“We have placed a buy in the Las Vegas media market and have an important message to communicate,” Lindsay said.
In the GPS ad, Crossroads links Horsford to President Barack Obama, whose approval rating by Americans is at an all-time low, according to several recent polls.
“Horsford’s gone the extra mile for Barack Obama, voting with Obama nearly 90 percent of the time — to keep Obamacare (and) its billions in Medicare cuts, for Obama’s policies that cost jobs and hurt our economy,” the narrator of the 30-second TV spot says. “Steven Horsford has already gone Washington.”
In fact, Horsford is a longtime Obama loyalist, serving as co-chair of his presidential campaign in Nevada in 2008.  http://www.reviewjournal.com/politics/elections/sensing-upset-conservative-group-ups-ante-against-Horsford
The conservative group must feel pretty strongly that this case may be winnable and are almost throwing a million dollars into the race instead of throwing the money into closer races around the country.
I hope the GOP isn't getting too confident with the elections only 2 weeks away.
