Dem Group To Boost Biden in October PA TV Ad Buy
Another Democratic group is going to bat for Biden on television in Pennsylvania this fall.
Future Forward USA PAC, described by Politico as “a relatively new Democratic super PAC,” announced that it is placing a $20 million reservation in television advertising time in October across selected media markets in six battleground states including Pennsylvania.
The group didn’t announce which specific markets in the state that they will be advertising or how much is allocated for the Keystone State specifically, but did say that they are committed to defeating President Donald Trump and electing Joe Biden in order to “protect America’s economy, Amercans’ health care and the American Democracy.”
“It’s clearer than ever that Donald Trump doesn’t care about anyone but himself,” said Chauncey McLean, President of Future Forward USA PAC. “We look forward to doing our part to end his presidency.”
The group, which was founded after the 2016 election, is partnering on this effort with Priorities USA Action, which they described is the “leading effort among outside groups to defeat Trump and elect Biden.”
Priorities USA announced that it has reserved $13 million in fall TV ads in Pennsylvania that will specifically are in the the Pittsburgh, Harrisburg – Lancaster – Lebanon – York, Wilkes-Barre – Scranton, and Johnstown – Altoona media markets.
While Priorities USA is already on the airwaves in the state promoting Biden’s bid and criticizing President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, pro-Trump groups have also begun their ad buys in the keystone state.
America First Action PAC launched a $5.5 million digital, cable, broadcast, and mail ad campaign attacking Biden that started in mid-April and will continue until the end of May, that is airing in the Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Johnstown, Erie, and Wilkes-Barre media markets.
