Democrats on Monday came out of the gate with a pair of radio ads aimed at two Kansas GOP House members: Kevin Yoder and Lynn Jenkins.

The radio spots are quick, 15-second digs at the two for leaving Washington for a congressional recess instead of dealing with the big issues of the day, such as job-creation and immigration reform.

Yoder of Overland Park represents the 3rd District. Jenkins of Topeka represents the 2nd District. Both are big favorites to win re-election next year.

The script:

“You work hard, so you deserve the same from your Congressman . But did you know Congressman Yoder is on a five-week taxpayer-funded vacation instead of working to create jobs? Tell Congressman Yoder to get his priorities straight.”

Republicans control the House. But Democrats are on taking the same vacation.
