Democratic Doug Jones is reportedly outspending Republican Roy Moore 7-1 in TV ad spending with just two weeks to go in the Alabama race to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Jones has aired over 10,000 spots on broadcast TV in Alabama since the primaries; Moore has run just over 1,000 of his own, according to figures compiled by Advertising Analytics, Politico reported.

Politico reported the disparity is the result of millions of online dollars pouring in to defeat Moore; Jones’ campaign has hit the airwaves with over $5.6 million of TV ads overall during in the general election campaign.

Moore’s campaign has run about $800,000 in TV ads, according to Advertising Analytics, Politico reported.

In his newest ads on Monday, Jones’ campaign focused on education policy, with the candidate slamming Moore for comparing “preschool and early childhood education to Nazi indoctrination.”

Moore’s campaign, meanwhile, unveiled a new ad bashing Republican and Democratic congressional leaders and calling the sexual misconduct allegations against him “false.”

According to Politico, a new super PAC, Highway 31, has spent $1.35 million backing Jones and attacking Moore so far. Moore hasn’t had the same outside help, but his campaign has claimed a smaller fundraising spike as the special election draws near.
