DSCC Changes Mind, Places $650K In New Ads For Alison Lundergan Grimes
October 22, 2014

Good news, people! But since Karl Rove’s Super PAC just announced they're spending $1.3 million on ads for Mitch, click here to help her fight back:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Democrats are reversing course and putting campaign cash behind Alison Lundergan Grimes and her bid to oust Republican Mitch McConnell.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Wednesday said it has asked stations in Kentucky to set aside $650,000 in ad time to help Grimes. A committee official shared the plan with The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss media strategy.

The move follows the committee's decision last week to stop spending money on ads in the race. The official says that new internal polling shows that undecided voters are breaking Grimes' way.
