Holy smokes. This should make the chocolate milk come spurting out of Tom Cole’s nose.
The DCCC just made a huge independent expenditure in Mississippi today, to the tune of $702,642.
The expenditures include $350K on an ad buys hitting GOP candidate Greg Davis, and another $350K on a media buy supporting Democrat Travis Childers. They’ve also thrown in a grand on phonebanking.
This is really huge. The DCCC has raised the stakes quite considerably. In total, they’ve now spent $1.1 million on the race to replace Roger Wicker. (With $950K or so of that coming after the April 22nd special primary.) Will the cash-strapped NRCC follow suit?
They probably can’t afford not to.
Special election: 5/13.
PS: We are only $40 short of our $2300 goal for Travis Childers. Will a hero emerge and put us over the top? Remember, DavidNYC has pledged to match the first $250 donated today with his own contribution. Let’s do this thing!
