BREAKING: A $2.6M September! Democratic Super PAC To Carpet Bomb McSally (#50ShadesOfDarkMoney)

A Democratic Super PAC focused on key Senate races has purchased approximately $2.6M of ad time for the month of September alone. The ads attacking GOP candidate Martha McSally will be running non-stop in Tucson and Phoenix.

Majority Forward is a 501(c)(4) arm of the Senate Majority PAC and does not disclose its contributors. Samples of the ad orders are below. Majority Forward filed an FEC disclosure tonight (Sunday), but only included $887k of expenditures.

Although the ad has begun to air, it is not yet available online. If you can capture  the video, please email it to us (or, upload and send us a link).

#50ShadesOfDarkMoney scale: Majority Forward earns a 50 for being as dark as dark money comes. The better-known Senate Majority PAC (now aka "SMP") for big Democratic donors spun off Majority Forward during the 2016 election cycle, and it quickly took in - and, distributed - over $35M. Much of that is in the form of grants to other progressive groups.
