Embattled Attorney General Tom Horne Readies $200,000 Ad Buy, To Begin In 2 Weeks (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has placed his order for approximately $200,000 in 30 second TV ads, to begin on July 28 and run through election eve.

The FCC filing from KTVK (Channel 3, Phoenix) (reproduced below) shows the planned ad buy for the Phoenix market - $193,304.35.  No word yet on the amount of spending for Tucson and/or Yuma.  The filing also does not include how much Horne will spend on producing the ad or ads.

As of May 31, Horne had $390,000 available to spend on the primary election, which ends August 26.

Horne faces Mark Bnovich in the GOP primary, and the nominee will face presumptive Democratic nominee Felecia Rotellini in November.  A poll released by an independent expenditure group campaigning for Doug Ducey for Governor shows that the incumbent AG trails Brnovich 25-39% in a survey of likely voters in the GOP primary.
