Karl Rove's American Crossroads Super PAC will spend $10 million in advertising to help four Republican Senate candidates.

Rove confirmed the news Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File."

The four targeted races are:
  • North Carolina, where $3.5 million has been pledged on behalf of GOP nominee Thom Tillis. Tillis' November Democratic opponent Kay Hagan and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's Super PAC spent a combined $6.7 million in an effort to defeat Tillis in the primary.
  • Arkansas, where $1 million is pledged to help Tom Cotton. Two Democratic Super PACs spent $2.6 million to attack him in the primary, where he was unchallenged.
  • Colorado, where $2.3 million is going to Rep. Corey Gardner's aid. Rove said $1.7 million was spent to attack Gardner.
  • Alaska, $875,000 is going to help Dan Sullivan. $1.7 million was spent to attack him in the primary, Rove said.
Politico reports slightly different figures for each race, but neither added up to a total of $10 million.
