Two Dem-aligned groups announced they are boosting their TV buys in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race by more than $6.8 million.
Senate Majority PAC had previously announced a $12 million commitment to the state. It is now adding $3.4 million to that buy.
Meanwhile, the 501(c)(4) Majority Forward is adding more than $3.4 million to its Wisconsin buy in addition to the $2.2 million already placed.
Combined, the two are now planning to spend more than $21 million in Wisconsin.
It’s the latest sign of the huge amounts of money expected to pour into Wisconsin for this fall’s U.S. Senate race. The National Republican Senatorial Committee has reserved $9 million in ads with another $2.6 million in hybrid ads with U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson’s campaign. Meanwhile, One Nation, a GOP-aligned group, has announced nearly $9 million in issue ads for Wisconsin.
The latest boost from Senate Majority PAC and Majority Forward is part of an additional $38 million the two groups are putting into six states: Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The first four are Dem held seats, while Pennsylvania’s seat is open after Republican Pat Toomey decided against seeking reelection.
The groups said they also will continue to book online and digital ads in addition to the TV spots.
