Outside-Group Spending In Montana’s U.S. Senate Race Approaching $21 million
Outside money continues to pour into Montana’s U.S. Senate race, including more than $4 million the past week or so – pushing the total to nearly $21 million, through last Friday.
In the 10 days ending last Friday, four groups reported spending more than $2.6 million to attack Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, with TV ads, digital ads and mailers.
A Super-PAC affiliated with President Trump, America First Action, reported spending the most money to go after Tester in that period, at $1.37 million.
The other groups spending against Tester in recent days include Restoration PAC, which is funded primarily by Illinois billionaire Richard Uihlein, Americans for Prosperity and the Club for Growth.
