FIRST WATCH: House Majority PAC Unleashes New $1/2M Wave Against Koch Brothers; Oh Yeah, and McSally and Tobin (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

The Democrat-philic outside spending giant House Majority PAC has unleased a third wave (at least) of ads in Arizona trying to tie Republican House candidates Martha McSally (CD2) and Andy Tobin (CD1) to the billionaire (and demonized) Koch brothers.

The first wave in the southern Arizona CD2 was back in January, and both McSally and Tobin were hit again in April.  House Majority has run other ads against McSally, but it keeps coming back to the Koch brothers well.

The anti-Tobin buy may run as much as $450,000 between tomorrow and next Monday, according to an FCC report filed by KTVK (Channel 3, Phoenix).  The anti-McSally run appears to be approximately $134,000 in the Tucson TV market and another $15,799 in online advertising.  The McSally ad(s) cost about $19,000 to produce.

The new House Majority PAC ads will likely have a side benefit for Democrats, given the information that came out last week tying GOP Gubernatorial nominee Doug Ducey to the Koch brothers' regular conferences.  (Expect October to be Share a Koch With...month.)

Have to marvel at how liberals have demonized the Kochs. The Kochs should have defended themselves.

Thanks for the comment, Keith. But, do you (a) really think that they haven't defended themselves, and/or (b) do you think that they really mind becoming the Democrats' demons?
