FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS: Last Weekend Expenditures In the Federal Races; DCCC Unveils New Ad Vs. Gosar

There were a LOT of independent expenditure reports filed with the Federal Election Commission this weekend.  But, next to none reflected last minute money coming to Arizona races.

The big Arizona buy was the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ("DCCC") plunking down $3,440.44 for production of an ad against GOP challenger Paul Gosar, and a media buy of $34,725.70.  The DCCC would appear to still be interested in protecting first-term Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.

In other (small) news:
--The League of Conservation Voters and the SEIU each spent about $10,000 on GOTV phone calls for Rep. Raul Grijalva (Dem., CD7).
--On the other side of the aisle, Freedomworks PAC spent $20,103.17 for signs and $439.83 for door hangers to support GOP challenger Ruth McClung (CD7).
--And, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund has continued to devote a portion of four staffers' time to defending Grijalva, for a total of about $2,200.00.
