THIS is what we're up against! DSCC planning a $1.3 MILLION ad buy against Rand!Submitted by MRoCkEd on Fri, 08/20/2010 - 11:50
The DSCC has reserved air time in October for KY and MO SEN, sources tell Hotline On Call. The committee is planning to spend $4M in MO for a statewide broadcast ad and $1.3M in KY for a statewide ad campaign.
The ads buys will bolster the campaigns of Dem nominees Robin Carnahan in MO and Jack Conway in KY.
Democrats privately acknowledge that KY SEN and MO SEN are the party's best chances to pick up Senate seats. Rand Paul's openly libertarian views in a state that relies on government funding has cost him some support, and Democrats have been hammering away at his recent comment downplaying the drug problem in eastern Kentucky.
