Remainders: Conservatives Buy Airtime for Mark Sanford
Posted at 4:04 p.m. on May 2, 2013
What we’re mulling on Thursday…
- #SC01: Independent Women’s Voice, a conservative group backing former Gov. Mark Sanford, spent about $65,000 on television in the special election, according to two Democratic operatives who monitor media buying. A number of other Republicans and conservative groups have lined up for Sanford in the past week.
- #IN05: Freshman Rep. Susan W. Brooks, R-Ind. has a primary challenge: Carmel businessman David Stockdale will announce his candidacy on Saturday, according to a release.
- #LA06: Businessman Paul Dietzel II announced Thursday he will run for Rep. Bill Cassidy’s seat. Cassidy is running for the GOP nomination to challenge Sen. Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., in 2014. The 6th District is a Republican stronghold, and the GOP field could end up being fairly crowded.
