Scott Peters, the Democratic challenger to incumbent Republican Brian Bilbray in the newly-drawn 52nd Congressional district, is poised to benefit big from party dollars outside the district rolling in to back his campaign.

Late last month, Peters won the state party’s “Win Back the House Challenge,” which declared him the non-incumbent candidate with the most grassroots support. As a result, he’s received online fundraising support at the state level.

Now, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has lent some national support, funding “Not Working For You,” a television ad attacking his opponent Bilbray for his past work as a lobbyist, for his support from large oil companies, and for votes to cut public health funding.

A release from the Peters campaign touting the new ad did not specify what, if any, advertising buys had been made for airing the piece, but the Reader's Dorian Hargrove has reported that between the Committee and another group, House Majority PAC, over $1 million has been committed to advertising for the campaign
