WATCH: National Democrats Spend $169K On Anti-Kelly Ad In Special Election To Replace Rep. Giffords (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

It is the national Democrats' turn to air drop money into the southern Arizona special election to replace retired Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-CD8).  Earlier, Arizona's Politics detailed independent expenditure campaigns from the Arizona GOP - which likely received the funds from the Beltway - and the National Republican Congressional Committee.  Those IE efforts have totaled approximately $421,000. Yesterday, the DCCC ("Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee") spent a comparatively piddling $169,000.

Here is the ad that is now showing on a TV screen near you (if you live in the Tucson market):

A Fact Check will follow.  The NRCC ad received an "F" grade yesterday.  (Triple F, actually, for "False with Freakin' Frequency.")
