Super PAC reserves $10.5 million in air time to help Dems take Rubio seat

Senate Majority PAC said Monday it is reserving $10.5 million in TV time in Florida in an effort to capture the seat now held by Marco Rubio.

"Republicans are going to nominate a far right, Tea Party candidate who is out of touch with Florida's middle-class. We're going to be ready to hold their eventual nominee accountable," said Shripal Shah, a spokesman for the super PAC.

He said the ads would begin in September and run through Election Day, on both cable and broadcast television. The PAC has also set aside time in New Hampshire, Nevada and Ohio. CNN has more.
