FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS: Most-sighted Ad Lighting Up Flake Gets New Legs

The campaign ad most-sighted (by our open panel of ad loggers) is the Majority PAC's spot attacking Rep. Jeff Flake's uranium mining connections.  That omni-present ad just got a major new boost from co-funder League of Conservation Voters.  Their FEC filing this afternoon notes that they are adding an estimated $304,000 to keep the spot playing on Arizona TV's.

That brings LCV's investment in the Carmona candidacy to $770,929.85.  Well, actually that is the total for their Victory Fund.  The LCV itself also spent $19,547.51 yesterday on staff time and "field campaign consulting", bringing that entity's spending total to $696,576.91.  Total total LCV spending: $1.4 Million.
