House Democrats have now reserved $49 million in advertising air time to help their candidates during the final weeks of the midterm elections.
Advertising plans reviewed Tuesday show that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has now reserved air time in media markets that cover 60 of the campaigns it is paying attention to. The reservations indicate House Democrats would be in position to spend some $49 million on TV ads during the final month of the campaign — if officials follow through on an early blueprint.
The reservations focus on districts served by lawmakers who are retiring, are seeking Senate seats or did not survive their primaries.
