NEW $225K Ad Campaign Supporting Rep. Kirkpatrick Begins On Monday (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

A new $225,000 TV ad buy supporting Arizona Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1) begins on Monday, continuing the early million-dollar-plus march of outside money focusing on the hotly-contested Congressional races in Arizona.

Patriot Majority USA - which traditionally has been largely funded by AFSCME and other labor unions - is running ads in the Phoenix market for the next two weeks (beginning at sunrise on Monday), according to FCC filings from KNXV (Ch.15) and KPNX (Ch.12).

Although the ad is not yet available online (Arizona's Politics will monitor and update when it becomes available), it is likely to focus on the conservative powerhouse Koch brothers - Patriots Majority USA has been attacking them repeatedly over the past two years.  Koch brothers'-funded groups have been hammering both Kirkpatrick and Ron Barber since late last year, and Democratic-philic groups have periodically countered with ads.

Arizona's Politics has requested more information from Patriots Majority USA about the ads and will update as needed.
