House Majority PAC Ups Final Ad Buys in Seven Districts
House Majority PAC, the biggest-spending Democratic super PAC operating in the House landscape, has upped its final media buys in seven congressional districts, including one where New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's new super PAC has gone on the air against the Democratic challenger.
The PAC added another $100,000 to its TV ad buy in Connecticut's 5th District, an open Democratic-held seat where Bloomberg's Independence USA PAC is set to spend around $575,000 airing ads in support of GOP nominee Andrew Roraback. Bloomberg's new group is spending millions over the election's final weeks in support of moderate House candidates from both parties.
After the infusion of an additional 100 grand, HMP's total buy for the last several weeks in Connecticut totaled $600,000.
House Majority PAC also bought an additional $50,000 in California's 26th District, an open GOP-held seat (upping their total to $490,000); $115,000 in Iowa's 4th District against GOP Rep. Steve King ($285,000 total, now spread across the Mason City and Sioux City media markets as well as Des Moines); $340,000 in the open, Democratic-held Illinois 12th District ($465,000 total, now in St. Louis as well as Paducah's media market); and additional $25,000 investments against GOP Reps. Brian Bilbray (California's 52nd District, $875,000 total), Chip Cravaack (Minnesota's 8th District, $675,000 total), Jim Renacci (Ohio's 16th District, $755,000 total), and Quico Canseco (Texas's 23rd District, $680,000 total).
