(UPDATE, 11/23, 1:15pm: Additional details on size of ad buy are coming in (slowly). KCRG, the ABC affiliate in Cedar Rapids, has uploaded details of a $22,000 purchase for this holiday week. That brings the sure-to-grow total to $69,000. The updated total is reflected in 2nd paragraph.)
Sean Noble, former money "wizard" for the Koch Brothers' political network, has been preaching "Dump Trump" for several months now; this week, his American Encore organization looks beyond, and begins airing ads in Iowa attacking Ted Cruz's Presidential bid.
The $69,000 ad buy focuses on "national security", and will begin airing tomorrow (Tuesday) in Des Moines. American Encore - formerly known as the Center to Protect Patient Rights - remains a major player in conservative independent expenditures and contribution anonymizing. Its President/Treasurer, Sean Noble, has been publicly campaigning against GOP frontrunner Donald Trump since this past July.
Arizona's Politics has requested more information from American Encore, as well as a copy of the ad, and will update as needed.
