BREAKING: PA-Sen: DSCC Committing $8.2 Million to Senate Race
According to Burgess Everett of Politico, the DSCC is committing $8.2 million to the Pennsylvania Senate race between freshman GOP incumbent Pat Toomey and Democratic nominee Katie McGinty. This contest represents a major portion of the Democratic committee’s $12 million TV ad buy.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has already gone above and beyond the call of duty for McGinty. In a rare step last March they endorsed her and several Democratic Senators contributed to her campaign.
We also learned today that the Koch brothers’ network will be backing Toomey, although it’s unclear how much cash they’ll ultimately spend.
It remains possible that the DSCC will rescind this money as the election nears, but given their deep attachment to McGinty she would have to be severely behind in the polls for such a move to occur.
