Ben Smith reports:

Liz Cheney's group Keep America Safe says it's mailed 810,000 pieces to voters in 17 districts, hitting the national security issues that have been largely absent from the Midterm elections.

The mailing attacks Democrats who the group rates poorly on issues like closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center.

Targets include Nick Rahall and Patrick Murphy, as well as Barney Frank, Maurice Hinchey, and Gerry Connolly.

"We are only going after Democrats who've repeatedly taken votes that make Americans less safe -- including votes to close Gitmo and bring terrorists to US soil, votes against putting Gitmo detainees on the no-fly list, and votes against allowing the US military to develop contingency plans for dealing with Iran," said KAS's Michael Goldfarb.

Smith has a copy of the mailer on his blog, here.

And here's the full list that Keep America Safe is targeting during the last few days before the election:

Oberstar
L. Sanchez
Himes
Chris Murphy
Barney Frank
T. Bishop
Connolly
Giffords
J. Hall
Hare 
Maffei
Perlmutter
