Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s aligned Super PAC is unloading tons of ammo for November.
The Senate Majority Leadership Fund has reserved over $141 million in television advertising buys for this election cycle.
According to the report, McConnell’s PAC reserved TV spots in seven states: Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
The majority of the money is going into the Georgia election between incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock (D) who is being challenged by Herschel Walker, a Trump-endorsed candidate who previously played in the NFL and won the Heisman trophy in 1982.
The PAC plans to spend $14.4 million against Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) and $15.1 million against Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.). It has reserved $27.6 million to defend retiring Sen. Richard Burr’s (R) seat in North Carolina, and $24.6 million to secure retiring Sen. Pat Toomey’s (R) seat in Pennsylvania.
The group has reserved $7.4 million for Alaska, where Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) faces a challenge from a candidate who has the backing of former President Trump. That money will come after the Aug. 16 all-party primary; the top four contenders in that primary advance to the November general election.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R) will get a boost from the $15.2 million the PAC plans to spend in Wisconsin. Johnson will face the winner of the Aug. 9 Democratic primary.
The report notes that New Hampshire was notably left off the Super PAC’s recent list of television ad buys. This might be a sign of relief for struggling Democrat incumbent Sen. Maggie Hassan and/or a sign that Republicans have not been able to court a strong enough candidate to get McConnell and other national Republicans interested in spending their resources in the Granite State.
