Groups Spending Big to Influence Ga. Senate Race

Saturday, 17 May 2014 07:36 AM

Corporations and special-interest groups are spending more than $6 million to influence the crowded election for the open Senate seat from Georgia.

Federal Election Commission records show that outside groups have spent $4.6 million on advertising either supporting or opposing individual Senate candidates in party primaries set for next Tuesday. Republican congressman Jack Kingston, for example, has gotten a boost from $920,000 worth of ads bought by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

A group called Citizens for a Working America PAC has launched a $1 million ad campaign attempting to paint Kingston as a wasteful Washington spender. The same group has spent $515,000 supporting former Reebok and Dollar General CEO David Perdue.

Groups have given $1.3 million to individual campaigns.
