Where the DCCC is spending its money — and how much

The powder is no longer dry. Here’s some big new spending by the DCCC, according to FEC reports. First, a few notes:

  • Defending 22 districts, trying to take gain one.
  • OH-16: Big ad buy here. They have clearly not given up on Boccieri just yet, although they haven’t lifted a finger for fellow Ohio Reps. Mary Jo Kilroy, D, or Steve Driehaus, D.
  • OH-13: We’ve seen a few big buys here by the DCCC. This district was drawn by Republicans after the last census with the idea of including as many Democrats as possible, so it’s kind of strange to see it as a battleground.
  • MI-1: They must think they’re having an effect here, because they’ve finally committed with a six-figure buy.
  • NC-8: They are taking the threat to Rep. Larry Kissell seriously with a second huge ad buy, even though the NRCC has not gotten involved. Americans for Job Security is doing all of the spending on the Republican side, and they’ve put in over half a million.
  • GA-2: The DCCC believes Sanford Bishop could really lose.
