The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) just announced its decision to send $1.45 million to Georgia to purchase television ads for David Perdue. According to The Hill:
The National Republican Senatorial Committee is increasing television ad buys by $7.4 million in six of the tightest races, raising efforts to regain Senate control in the final weeks before Election Day.
The GOP Senate campaign arm will up ad buys by $1.5 million in Colorado, $1.45 million in Georgia, 1.25 million in Iowa, $1.2 million in New Hampshire and $1.0 million in both South Dakota and Alaska.
Note that Georgia will receive the second highest amount of money from the NRSC in this round. With less than a month to go before Election Day, it is also interesting to see the NRSC purchase a significant ad buy in Georgia after announcing last month that they had no plans to spend more money here. Does the NRSC now see Georgia as a tossup race over other competitive races such as Kansas and Kentucky? Or are they just trying to stay ahead of the game here?
