BREAKING: Most Expensive Mailer In Arizona Political History? Club For Growth Spends Big (Again) For Jeff Flake (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

This would have been a very large media buy.  But, when Arizona's Politics pulled up the details on Club For Growth's new independent expenditure supporting Rep. Jeff Flake's (R-CD6) Senate run and saw that the $416,213.94 was for a mailer(s), it gained in significance.

Club for Growth's total raised and spent on behalf of Flake now tops $1.6 Million - including TV ads hammering primary foe Wil Cardon, amounts donated by CFG members to Flake through the Club's conduit, and more - and is likely to go much higher as new reports come in shortly.

The mailer was likely sent to Arizona Republicans and independents (who can vote in either August 28 primary).  This assumption is made because the Club for Growth paid local political consultant Chris Baker (Blue Point, LLC) to send out the mailers, instead of their national mailing vendors.

Even with a nice multi-colored, fancy piece, and even with postage going up each year, that is a LOT of pieces of mail.

(If you receive one of these mailers, please provide Arizona's Politics with a copy, at the e-mail address listed at the top of this page.)
