DCCC Cavalry Enters #AZ09, Spends $240K To Hold Back Rep. Sinema Challenger Rogers; $1.3M DCCC Week In AZ (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

New evidence that the Democrats may be afraid of a wave election sweeping away incumbent Representatives: for the first time, the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) is attacking GOP challenger Wendy Rogers in #AZ09.

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9) has been ranked as "likely" to return to Congress, and has been using her campaign funds for strictly positive TV advertising.  Rogers went on the air with a splash a couple of weeks ago; no Republican outside money has entered the race... yet.

A DCCC filing this afternoon shows a $227,258 ad buy on Phoenix stations, starting yesterday.  The ad - with a $12,398 production cost - does not yet appear on the DCCC's YouTube channel, nor have any stations filed an ad buy report.

The same report shows a new $356,858 ad buy to support Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1) in the toss-up race, and $732,646 in various expenditures supporting Rep. Ron Barber (D-CD2) in his hotly-contested, toss-up race.
