Now, according to Marc Levy of the Associated Press, EMILY’s List is launching $1 million worth of TV ads for the candidate. They’ll begin running in Philadelphia on April 5th and continue through to the April 26th primary.
Earlier this week, McGinty released her own first TV commercial.
All this news comes on the heels of a report from Jonathan Tamari of the Inquirer about the difficulties McGinty has encountered in the Democratic primary. In that piece, Tamari quotes McGinty campaign chair and former Gov. Ed Rendell as saying she’ll need her forces to spend $3.5 million to $4 million in order to win.
While McGinty brushed off those comments, telling the Daily News’ Max Baer that Rendell “meant well”, it set a bar that Republicans will gleefully hold her to.
McGinty is running against former Congressman Joe Sestak and Braddock Mayor John Fetterman in the Senate Democratic primary.
