BREAKING: Planned Parenthood Super PAC Begins Multi-Million Dollar #AZSen Campaign With $1.1M Canvassing, Digital Ad Spend

Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood's political organization announced that Arizona's Senate race would be one of its top eight campaigns in the nation. Today, they disclosed their first $1.1M have been spent on digital advertising and canvassing.

Planned Parenthood Votes is spending $600,000 to set up in-house canvassing operations with main offices in
Tucson, Phoenix and Tempe. The other half of the spend is on digital ads like the ones pictured here - both targeting GOP nominee Martha McSally's healthcare positions and touting Democratic nominee Kyrsten Sinema's.

The biggest individual donors to the PPV Super PAC are Richard Rosenthal (Cincinnati) and Amy Goldman Fowler (New York), having contributed $2M each. PPV indicated they plan to spend $20M in 8 key Senate and Governors' races across the country.

On its political website, PPV notes that Sinema has a 100% voting record and is a former PP patient, while saying "(McSally) voted eight times to 'defund' Planned Parenthood health centers."

#50ShadesOfDarkMoney: Planned Parenthood Votes is organized as a Super PAC that appears to be disclosing all of its donors. It therefore has a 5 on the transparent end of the #50ShadesOfDarkMoney scale.
