BREAKING: National Republicans Scramble To Join Air War, For Lesko

The National Republican Congressional Committee ("NRCC") is scrambling its air war to help elect Debbie Lesko in next month's Congressional special election in northwest Maricopa County.

Yesterday, the NRCC and Lesko's campaign ordered $171,590 worth of airtime on Phoenix stations, for an ad beginning to air today. (No confirmation yet on what ad will run.)

Democratic opponent Hiral Tipirneni was already airing ads ($70,000 through today). The election date is April 24, but early voting begins this week.

On Friday, the Republican National Committee filed with the FEC that it was spending $281,250 to hire people (for $11.25/hour) to knock on doors in #AZ08. And, Politico is reporting that the Republican-philic Congressional Leadership Fund is planning to spend $100,000 to keep the seat from falling to the Democrats.
