Republican group’s ads target conservatives, give Boehner cover

A Republican-aligned group is spending $400,000 on ads accusing conservatives who opposed a bill to keep the Department of Homeland Security up and running last week of putting national security at risk.

The American Action Network’s move counters a push by House conservatives to reject anything that doesn’t also unravel President Barack Obama’s immigration executive actionsfurther elevating an internal squabble that has so far played out on Capitol Hill, and giving House Speaker John Boehner cover on his right flank.
