Vern Buchanan Campaign reserves $4 million in TV commercial time

in Uncategorized by

Republican Congressman Vern Buchanan has claimed the airtime from August 1 through November 5, with a two-week hiatus in late August, reports Politico.

“The lion’s share will go to all four network affiliates in Tampa, with $350,000 for the Sarasota ABC affiliate and $400,000 set aside for cable. Tampa is one of the most important markets in one of the top swing states. Buchanan is being targeted by national Democrats, and placing the buys early means his commercials can run against the more-coveted shows.”

Memo with more details on where the money will go: .
