DSCC Drops $567,000 On Ad Buy For Coakley

The National Journal powered blog Hotline On Call is reporting that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is making a $567,000 ad buy in the Boston and Springfield markets.

The NRSC has not run ads on Brown’s behalf, and a spokesperson refused to comment on whether the committee will do so.

No word on whether they will spell Massachusetts correctly.

  • From Sen. John Kerry (D., Ma.), via a fundraising e-mail to Democrats:

       This is our wake-up call. Polls in Massachusetts are tightening, and one even shows a dead heat in the fight to keep Ted Kennedy’s seat in the hands of a Democrat who will fight and vote for jobs, health care, clean energy, and mainstream values.

       The far right has launched a massive online fundraising effort, and Brown’s allies are blanketing Massachusetts with anonymously funded, shadowy attack ads by outside groups. Sound familiar?

       It’s time to stand with Martha Coakley. Your donation now could make the difference. Election Day is in one week. Can you step up?

       The DSCC hit its $100,000 goal, but the right-wing attack dogs are spending that and more on ads against Martha. You and I both know that these negative campaigns can work.

       That’s why we need to raise $225,000 to help Martha fight back. Martha’s vote is critical to getting health care and the rest of President Obama’s agenda passed. If we lose this seat, we also lose our ability to stop Republican filibusters.

       The next five days will decide the fate of Ted Kennedy’s seat. Do we elect Martha Coakley – who will fight for jobs, our families and our communities as my Massachusetts colleague and the state’s first woman senator, or Republican Scott Brown, whose allies in the right wing dream of holding a “tea party” in Kennedy country?

    I haven’t seen any “blanketing Massachusetts with anonymously funded, shadowy attack ads by outside groups”. We’re all wondering why the RNC & others aren’t doing ANYTHING. This email is an outright lie.
