Kaine Makes $2.5 Million Fall Ad Buy

May 31, 2012

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine's Senate campaign has reserved $2.5 million worth of fall TV ad time, his campaign announced on Thursday, bringing the total Democratic fall ad buy commitment to nearly $10 million already.

"We continue to be encouraged by the strong grassroots enthusiasm for Governor Kaine. It is this generous support and a smart management of resources that has allowed us to make an early investment for the fall," said Kaine spokeswoman Brandi Hoffine.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has already reserved in $7.4 million for fall ads in the commonwealth. The National Republican Senatorial Committee has reserved $5.5 million worth of ad time. Reservations made this far in advance are subject to change.

Kaine's campaign also announced on Thursday that he raised over $1.2 million in the pre-primary period of the second quarter. The Virginia primary is on June 12. Overall, Kaine's fundraising has so far outpaced that of his likely Republican opponent, former Sen. George Allen.
