FOLLOWING MONEY IN 2016 PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS

CAVALRY CALL CONTINUES IN #AZ09: Realtors Drop $245K TV Ad For Rep. Sinema (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

Following closely on the heels of the DCCC's (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's) $240K ad buy attacking Wendy Rogers, the GOP challenger to Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9), the National Association of Realtors has joined the cavalry call, spending $245,000 on a positive TV ad supporting the first-term Congresswoman.

The NAR's PAC sent out some mailers praising Sinema before the primary election (Aug. 26), but this is its first expenditure since then.  The ad has not yet shown up on YouTube (to our knowledge), nor have any of the Phoenix TV stations placed their contracts in their FCC public files yet.

Arizona's CD9 has been listed by most experts as a "likely" win for Sinema, and outside money had not made a significant appearance in the East Valley-based district until the past few days.

The NAR will also now have the interesting distinction of being on the Arizona airwaves in a big way for one Democratic candidate (Sinema) and one Republican candidate (Doug Ducey for Governor); together with the Arizona Realtors and the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, the NAR has spent $600,000 on TV for Ducey.
