"Obama did not chart this disastrous course for America on his own.  It's time for those in Congress who served as rubber stamps of his radical agenda be held accountable."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer on Thursday announced the latest phase of his targeted "Restore America" campaign to "rescue America from the dead end road President Obama and his Congressional enablers have taken."

Television ads will begin this week and run until election day in 10 key House and Senate races as part of a seven-figure ad campaign aimed at bringing new leadership to Washington, D.C. who are not hostile to the needs of businesses trying to create jobs or ambivalent to the national security concerns of Americans in the age of terrorism.

"Americans are demanding that the liberal politicians responsible for dramatically growing the Washington bureaucracy while shrinking the American economy be held accountable," said Bauer, chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, the source of the ad campaign. "The American economy is sending out an S.O.S., and it's time to Stop Obama's Socialism with leaders who are unapologetically for lower taxes, pro-free enterprise,  pro-limited government, pro-strong national defense, pro-family and pro-life."

The Senate races selected are:  

Harry Reid (D-NV) vs. Sharron Angle (R)

Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) vs. John Boozman (R)

Joe Sestak (D-PA) vs. Pat Toomey (R)

Marco Rubio (R-FL) vs. Charlie Crist (I) vs. Kendrick Meek (D)

The House races selected are:  

AZ-8, Gabriella Giffords (D) vs. Jesse Kelly (R)

MI-1, Daniel Benishek (R) vs. Gary McDowell (D) (Bart Stupak's seat)

MI-7, Mark Schauer (D) vs. Tim Walberg (R)

MO-4, Ike Skelton (D) vs. Vicky Hartzler (R)

OH-1, Steve Chabot (R) vs. Rep. Steve Driehaus (D)

VA-2, Glenn Nye (D) vs. Scott Rigell (R)

This latest effort builds on Bauer's other election activities and extensive endorsements. At the Campaign for Working Families website, endorsement lists and the "Candidate Spotlight" highlight other races where Bauer has been involved.  Coming soon, Bauer will announce Get-Out-The-Vote radio campaigns in select districts.

Bauer is also part of an effort to target three Iowa State Supreme Court judges in judicial retention races who decided to legislate from the bench to rule in favor of same sex marriage.  The three judges up for a vote are Iowa Chief Justice Marsha K. Ternus, Judge Michael J. Streit; and Judge David L. Baker.

"Americans are tired of activist judges who are forcing radical social change on the American people," said Bauer.
