UPDATE: U.S. Chamber of Commerce Last Minute Buy For Andy Tobin Totals $293K (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

Yesterday, we reported on the last minute ad buy by the national (international?) powerhouse U.S. Chamber of Commerce on behalf of Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin in his battle for the GOP nomination in Congressional District 1.  At that point, the total amount of the five-day buy (it started today) was not known.

Now, it is.  The approximately $293,000 that the Chamber is plunking down will buy a lot of primetime air time.  Prime sporting events this weekend (NFL preseason, PGA golf) will also be peppered with the spot comparing incumbent Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1) to Nancy Pelosi and calling Tobin a "conservative" or "strong conservative" three times in less than 30 seconds.
