The Senate Majority PAC, which works to elect Democrats to the U.S. Senate, has reserved about $9 million for television advertising to aid Katie McGinty in her campaign against Republican incumbent Pat Toomey.
The reservation for television time begins in September and goes until the election on November 8th. The group says that they could reserve more TV ad time later.
The campaign between McGinty and Toomey is getting increasingly expensive, and is on track to exceed $50 million, as it is a highly salient and closely watched race that could determine control of the U.S. Senate. Toomey is viewed as one of the most vulnerable Republicans up for election this year.
