Dem Senate Super PAC to Wage $80M TV Ad Campaign in 9 Key States

Dem Senate Super PAC to Wage $80M TV Ad Campaign in 9 Key States

By    |   Monday, 11 June 2018 11:22 AM

A super PAC aligned with Senate Democrats is slapping down $80 million to reserve TV ad time this fall in nine battleground states that will be crucial to their hopes of flipping the upper chamber, The Washington Post reports.

It's mostly a defensive play for Democrats, who have to defend a third more seats -10 of them in President Donald Trump country - than do Republicans in November.

Senate Majority PAC told the Post it is poised to secure post-Labor Day ad time in:

  • Arizona (offense)
  • Florida (defense)
  • Indiana (defense)
  • Missouri (defense)
  • Montana (defense)
  • Nevada (offense
  • North Dakota (defense)
  • Tennessee (offense)
  • West Virginia (defense)

The four states Democrats are most worried about losing seats: Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota, the Post reports.

The state Democrats are most hopeful to flip: Nevada.

The anxiety of net-losses are mounting for Democrats, hence the huge autumn spend. Though the super PAC wouldn't give a breakdown of how the $80 million will be distributed, each state will have a seven-figure ad buy, the Post reports.

"We are implementing an aggressive media strategy," Senate Majority PAC President J.B. Poersch told the Post in a statement. "We look forward to building off our existing momentum with smart, tactical planning to ensure victory in November."

Poersch is a close ally of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
