BREAKING BERNIE ARIZONA AIR BLITZ: Sanders Starts $543K Air Campaign; No Long-Form Ads (FOLLOWING MONEY IN 2016 POLITICS)

Beginning today, Arizona airwaves will be flooded with 30-second TV spots for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. The spots will run until next Tuesday's Presidential Preference Election, when Arizona Democrats will choose between Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The $543,000 ad campaign is hitting the Phoenix market ($402,000) and the Tucson market ($141,000).  The FCC filings do not include any cable ad buys, digital ads, or other Arizona markets.

The ad buy also does not include any of the long-form Sanders commercials which Campaign Manager Tad Devine had hinted that they may be running in Arizona. (Yet.)

Sanders is also flying to Phoenix for a rally tonight, at which he will probably make reference to results from the 5 significant primaries taking place today (Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina).

No other candidates are currently running broadcast TV ads in Arizona.  Minor, pro-life Democratic candidate Henry Hewes has made inquiries.
