WATCH, FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS: Club For Growth Resumes Its Spending Barrage For Flake's Senate Campaign

Just as we were beginning to wonder why the Club For Growth had not yet jumped into the general election battle for Arizona's seat in the U.S. Senate, the conservative powerhouse jumps in with both feet, with a $530,000 television ad buy attacking Democratic nominee Richard Carmona.

CFG poured more than $1.6 Million into Rep. Jeff Flake's (R-CD6) Senatorial primary battle against self-funded Wil Cardon, and Arizona's Politics has detailed the close ties between the organization and Flake before.  Now that polls are demonstrating how tight the general election contest has become, CFG is stepping up again.

Here is the new ad:

A quick check of FCC reports filed by two Phoenix TV stations (which have been especially good about filing their reports quickly) does not show the ad buy yet, but CFG has filed today with the FEC that the money was expended on Wednesday.

(Please let Arizona's Politics know if, when and where you see this ad.  Not to mention sending us information about other ads you see, mailers you receive, etc.  (News) tips from readers like you help make this blog more interesting.)
