Where the Dems are spending today: Unlikely targets

Today, the DSCC made some pretty unsurprising expenditures. They cut ads against Republicans John Raese, W.Va., Linda McMahon, Conn., Ken Buck, Colo., and Rand Paul, Ky. They also made a $576,000 ad buy against Dino Rossi.

The DCCC’s most notable ad buys, on the other hand, go to a handful of districts which, with a few exceptions, probably no one would have expected a month ago:

  • $110,000 against Tim Burns in PA-12
  • $106,000 against Scott Bruun in OR-5
  • $132,000 against Jon Barela in NM-1
  • $113,000 against Randy Demmer in MN-1
  • $100,000 against David McKinley in WV-1
  • $66,000 against Bill Johnson in OH-6
  • $32,000 against Ruth McClung in AZ-7
