DSCC Back On The Air In Support Of Grimes

After going dark in Kentucky on October 10th, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is electing to return to the airwaves.

Analysts debated the significance of the committee’s previous decision not to purchase any airtime in support of Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes in the final weeks of the campaign, but now the group says it plans to rejoin the fight, telling Politico it will soon purchase $650,000 worth of airtime in Kentucky.

Manu Raju, a senior congressional reporter with the publication, says the DSCC made the decision after “reviewing recent internal and public polling.”

With Republicans outpacing Democrats on ad spending in the state and a recent Bluegrass Poll showing Sen. Mitch McConnell taking a slim one point lead over Grimes, Democrats are looking to make a final push with less than two weeks to go.
