Looking Forward, McSally Reserves $460K In TV Ads For General Election Campaign For Congress (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

The presumptive GOP nominee to challenge Rep. Ron Barber (D-CD2) is taking presumptive action, reserving $460,000 in TV ad time in Tucson... for October (and early November).  Martha McSally - who narrowly lost to Barber in 2012 - faces two challengers for the Republican nomination.

KOLD (Ch. 13) filed details (here is the first of the five weeks, also posted below*) on the ad reservation today, and the 30-second spots between September 29 and November 4 total $96,385.

 McSally has not yet filed her 2nd quarter campaign finance report, but on March 31, 2014, there was $847,142 in the checkbook.

McSally's two opponents in the primary, Shelly Kais and Chuck Wooten, have not yet responded to Arizona's Politics inquiries.  But, one of the immutable laws of human nature is that even big underdogs do not like to be overlooked.

h/t to Roll Call (which seems to have an in with the McSally campaign). Also, to Joe Ferguson at the Arizona Star/ (which is currently very difficult to navigate).
