Democratic PACs buy another $1.6 million in TV time to attack McMahon
Two national Democratic political action committees reported Thursday spending another $1.6 million on Connecticut television advertising on behalf of Democrat Chris Murphy in the race for U.S. Senate.
The latest spending brings independent expenditures in the Senate race to $5.9 million, nearly all of it on behalf of Murphy or in opposition to his self-funded Republican opponent, Linda McMahon.
The Majority PAC, which is defending the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate, reported an expenditure of slightly more than $1 million, bringing its Connecticut total this fall to $2 million.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee reported an expenditure of nearly $600,000, bringing its Connecticut total to $2.7 million.
Together, the two PACs now have spent $4.7 million in support of Murphy, with most of the money used for ads attacking McMahon over the past four weeks.
