Outside Groups Flooding Georgia with Ad Buys Before Senate Runoffs

November 21, 2020 

"The flood of outside money comes as Democrats and Republicans battle for the two GOP-held seats, which with the Senate currently at a 50-48 majority for the next Congress will determine which party controls the upper chamber," the Hill reported.

Since the primaries began in 2019, the two races combined have seen $206 million of political media spending, the outlet said, adding that the number is expected to climb in the remaining weeks leading up to the runoff elections in early January:

Data from the tracking firm for the race between Sen. David Perdue (R), who is running for a second term, and Democrat Jon Ossoff, shows a massive spike in money already reserved for advertisements in the final month-and-a-half sprint.

The Ossoff campaign and outside groups have reserved more than $38 million in ads through the beginning of January, while Perdue and GOP groups supporting him have reserved more than $28 million in ad time. AdImpact says it has already tracked a combined $71.5 million in the two weeks after the race was officially extended.

Perdue released a campaign advertisement on November 13 revealing the Democrats' call to take "total Democratic control" through the U.S. Senate majority, according to Breitbart News.

"Now we take Georgia, then we change America," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) says in the video:

In a statement on Friday, Perdue campaign manager Ben Fry said that Ossoff would be "a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and Chuck Schumer in their bid to horrifically change America."

"David Perdue is our last line of defense against efforts to give voting rights to illegal immigrants, defund the police, pack the Supreme Court, and take away private health insurance coverage. We must reject this radical takeover on January 5th -- and save America," he concluded.
