Week Four of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly Throw Out clueless Harry Reid!!
Focusing on the Senate races, is it worth ten bucks a week to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again? That’s the cost of a single margarita at Pistol Pete’s Radiator Repair, Brazilian Wax Emporium and Cantina.
Our candidates are being seriously outspent in the homestretch. From Political Clown Parade:
Data compiled by The Wall Street Journal indicates, “Since July 3, the largest Super PACs aligned with Democrats have raised four times the money of pro-GOP Super PACs, and have now spent $60 million to Republicans’ $38 million. And, it’s not just on the Super PAC side.”
“The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee doubled the fundraising haul of its Republican counterpart in August and had an almost $10 million cash edge heading into the fall. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ended August with a $5 million lead over the National Republican Senatorial Committee. And, Republican strategists closely watching ad spending in key Senate races acknowledge that they are being outspent—in some cases badly—on TV. In Colorado, for example, Democrats and their allied groups dropped over $1 million on TV ads in the first two weeks of September; Republicans spent just over $300,000.”
“North Carolina and, until recently, Iowa are other examples of where Democrats have used their spending edge to boost their candidates. And, that advantage will get even more important in October. Democrats’ early money allowed them to reserve air time at lower rates while Republicans are just now doing that.”
With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in NC. Real Clear Politics has Tillis up 1.0 points on the average, and rates the state as a toss up.
Also consider these other important close races!
