The non-par­tis­an group Cen­ter For­ward is run­ning ads on be­half of Sens. Mark Pry­or (D-AR), Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Joe Don­nelly (D-IN), as well as three house can­did­ates, for a total buy worth more than $738,000. Hagan and Pry­or’s ads com­mend their bi­par­tis­an ef­forts and thank them for work­ing across the aisle to pass a budget bill. (Hot­line re­port­ing)

OUT­SIDE MONEY: The cam­paign fin­ance ac­count­ab­il­ity group Coun­ter­PAC is run­ning TV ads in Alaska and Geor­gia ask­ing can­did­ates to call for a “no dark money” pledge. The ads fea­ture a sky­diver look­ing out from a plane, who says “some­times, tak­ing the first step can be scary.” 

“There’s a simple step our can­did­ates here in (Alaska/Geor­gia) can take to start get­ting secret money out of polit­ics,” the nar­rat­or says. It then asks voters to call both can­did­ates and ask them to sign the su­per PAC’s pledge, re­ject­ing all secret money spent on their be­half. “Be­cause if we don’t take steps to get secret money out of cam­paigns, our Demo­cracy is headed for a really hard land­ing.” (re­lease)
