Crossroads Makes Final $6 Million Ad Blitz

October 27, 2010

American Crossroads, the conservative group that has played a major role in this year's midterms, made $6 million worth of ad buys for the final week of the election late Tuesday night.

The two groups -- American Crossroads and its nonprofit organization, Crossroads GPS -- spent in both Senate and House races. Some of the buys -- like the one in Rep. Russ Carnahan's (D-Mo.) suburban St. Louis district -- show that the GOP is going after new targets.

Crossroads GPS made the biggest expenditures in the Illinois and Washington Senate races -- two of the costliest races this year. They spent $1 million on an ad targeting state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias (D) in Illinois and another $1 million targeting Sen. Patty Murray (D) in Washington. American Crossroads also spent $646,000 on an ad attacking Sen. Michael Bennet (D) in Colorado, in what's shaping up to be a barnburner of a Senate race.

The same group spent money against new Democratic targets. They include Carnahan, Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.) and Jim Costa (D-Calif.). They also went on the air attacking Democratic Reps. Ciro Rodriguez (Texas), Lincoln Davis (Tenn.), John Boccieri (Ohio), and Joe Donnelly (Ind.).

They also targeted Reps. Sanford Bishop (Ga.), Heath Shuler (N.C.) -- and are expending resources to defend GOP Rep. Charles Djou (Hawaii).
