NRSC to spend $3.4 million for Pat Toomey in Pa.

Republicans are going to make sure that the Pennsylvania Senate race doesn’t get away from them, and they’re planning to spend big:

The NRSC [National Republican Senatorial Committee] is upping its ad buys in Pennsylvania, doubling what it plans to spend there in the next few weeks before Election Day.

The move is a sign that Senate race is tightening and both parties are heavily committed to the race financially.

The NRSC had originally planned to spend $1.7M statewide on air time. It is now planning $3.4M, according to committee sources. That’s the same amount that the DSCC is planning to spend on air time in the next two weeks.

The news comes a day after the NRSC aired its first IE ad in Pennsylvania and two Democratic polls showed Rep. Joe Sestak making significant gains in his bid against former Rep. Pat Toomey (R).

Hmm. Maybe the NRSC is worried about Toomey moving up, but thus far Democrats have dumped a lot of money into the race on Sestak’s behalf and to little avail. Also, those Democratic polls might not be too reliable.
