NRCC Makes Small Ad Buys In Arizona, Georgia, Minnesota

The National Republican Congressional Committee has bought airtime in three television markets in the next week, according to a Democrat and a Republican who monitor media buys.

The small buys target competitive districts home to Democratic incumbents:

  • Arizona’s 2nd District: $3,585 in the Tucson market targeting Rep. Ron Barber;
  • Georgia’s 12th District: $2,750 in the Augusta media market targeting Rep. John Barrow; and
  • Minnesota’s 7th District: $1,540 in Minneapolis media market targeting Rep. Collin C. Peterson.

These buys are minimal for television advertisements, but a well-placed GOP source cautioned the initial figures do not reflect the NRCC’s full upcoming advertising spending — and additional spending could be on the way soon.
