DSCC going back on air in Kentucky for Grimes

10/22/2014 02:44 PM

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is going back on-air for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes in her battle against U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell.

Buoyed by recent polling, the DSCC told Politico that they were investing $650,000 in air time after “reviewing recent internal and public polling,” according to Manu Raju.

The latest Bluegrass Poll published Monday shows McConnell up one percentage point on Grimes, but the race remains within the margin of error.

The decision to go back on air in the state comes after the group went dark after not buying airtime in the state on October 10 in favor of directing resources to other hotly contested races around the country.

With less than two-weeks on the clock in the election Grimes will need every penny to keep up with the Republicans who are outspending Democrats in the Senate race.
