Dem U.S. House Super PAC targets Florida



The Hill reports that Florida is among the first TV buys for a super PAC, House Majority PAC, helping elect Democrats to the U.S. House. Presumably this particular slice of the overall $7.5 million buy is aimed at holding onto the South Florida House seat now held by Patrick Murphy. That may prove to be a tall order.

From The Hill:

...Seven of the eight states in which House Majority PAC made its initial reservations have competitive Senate races. It has reserved approximately $1 million in Denver, $900,000 in West Palm Beach, Fla., $316,000 in Cedar Rapids and $313,000 in Des Moines, Iowa, $3 million in Las Vegas, $472,000 in Manchester, N.H., and $730,000 in Philadelphia.

Many of those markets are also competitive at the presidential level, meaning air time for next fall will be even more expensive. House Majority PAC also bought $545,000 worth of time in New York City. All reservations are both broadcast and cable.
