SPEED BUMP ON THE ROAD TO A DEMOCRATIC SENATE: Signs of Trouble in Ohio As Dems Delay Senate Ad Buys.
A Democratic outside group is canceling the first two weeks of its advertising in the Ohio Senate race, a sign that national Democrats are increasingly pessimistic about Gov. Ted Strickland’s campaign against Republican incumbent Sen. Rob Portman.
Senate Majority PAC, a super PAC with ties to Democratic Leader Harry Reid that is Democrats’ main outside spending group for Senate races, is delaying its initial fall advertising in the race, according to two ad buying sources who requested anonymity. The group was slated to begin fall advertising on September 6, but is now delaying its reservations through September 19.
The news comes the day after the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee delayed its advertising in the race from September 13 until September 22, according to The Washington Post, though the DSCC is still spending to help fund an ad run by Strickland’s campaign.
Trump’s poll numbers in Ohio seem to have halted their free fall, too.
