FIRST WATCH: $300K Outside Group TV Ad For David Garcia - GOP Nominee "Not Prepared" (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

A new outside spending group is dropping a $300,000 ad buy onto the low-key race for State Superintendent of Public Instruction, labeling GOP nominee Diane Douglas as "not prepared" and lauding Democratic nominee David Garcia's experience and bi-partisan endorsements.

"Restore Education Funding Now" (REFN) has released the ad this morning.

The ad currently has a $159,250 Phoenix run starting today and ending the day before the (November 4) election.  Additional airtime was likely purchased on Tucson stations but has not yet been filed with the FCC.  (The Secretary of State's Office filing indicates that $300,000 was already spent, total.)

REFN just formed and registered with the Arizona Secretary of State's Office.  It has not yet disclosed any funding, and Arizona's Politics has inquired from those listed; an update will be filed when new information is obtained.

Waste of money. David will win and by a large margin. Don't the dark money people even look at the polls?
