The independent expenditure arm of the National Republican Congressional Committee launched 16 new ads Friday backed by a combined total of more than $6 million.

Republicans are poised to comfortably keep control of the House, but how much the chamber’s margin shifts will largely depend on the way competitive races swing over the next 23 days.

The NRCC is on television — playing both offense and defense — in the following districts:

  • This spot in California’s 7th district, backed by $560,000 in the Sacramento media market for a week, attacking physician Ami Bera (D), who is taking on Rep. Dan Lungren (R)
