Minnesota No. 1 for DSCC and NRSC spending
Minnesota has never had this much attention. The backlash? We can't seem to escape the terribly dirty campaign ads. These politicians are going to go down kicking.
Political parties think they can just buy our love... Unfortunately it might be true.
Minnesota is the top state for Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee spending during the final week, according to Roll Call.
The DSCC spent more than $3.4 million for the final week in the race for Senate. Roll Call says that is $1.3 million more than they are spending in any other state. The NRSC is spending close to $1.8 million this last week of the campaign.
The 2-to-1 spending advantage in the final week in Minnesota is comparable to the 2-to-1 advantage the DSCC has maintained in overall IE spending for the cycle. Through Oct. 24, the DSCC had spent $53.2 million for the cycle compared to $27.4 million by the NRSC.
