Where they’re spending: ATR goes after Grijalva, Rahall, Sestak

Over at NRO, Andrew Stiles writes that Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., is in mortal peril. He mentions that Americans for Tax Reform is planning an ad buy against him.

This morning the group reported its independent expenditure: $220,000 in television airtime. ATR is also pouring money into other unlikely GOP targets:

  • $301,000 for ads against Rep. Sanford Bishop, D-Ga.
  • $513,000 for ads against Rep. Gary Peters, D-Mich.
  • $463,000 for ads against Rep. Lincoln Davis, D-Tenn.
  • $300,000 for ads against Rep.Nick Rahall, D-W.Va.

ATR is also spending $316,000 against a much more likely target, Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania’s Senate race.

Some of the ads are modeled after this one, with the names and states (obviously) changed:
