The news is out: [Two top Republican super PACs are taking out a massive $70 million ad buy in Georgia ahead of the state’s two Senate runoff elections in January.
Senate Leadership Fund (SLF) is dropping $35 million in the state in support of Sen. David Perdue (R), who is slated to face off against Democrat Jon Ossoff on Jan. 5, while another super PAC, American Crossroads, is spending $35 million to boost Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) in her bid against Democrat Raphael Warnock.
The combined $70 million ad buy brings the two groups’ total spending in the runoffs so far to nearly $80 million. The super PACs announced $9 million in radio and television advertising earlier this week.
The latest ad buy from SLF and American Crossroads was first reported on Friday by Politico.
Both parties have already begun spending heavily in the Georgia runoffs as they battle over control of the Senate. Republicans are currently slated to enter the next Congress with 50 seats to Democrats’ 48. Given that Democrats will control the White House next year, the party needs to win both seats in Georgia to take control of the upper chamber.]
Please tell me again it’s illegal to buy votes. It’s a big money laundering scheme where money is shuffled from different organizations and the voters are left to simmer in their stupidity. This money has to bring money back.
