Conservative Group Pulls Ads From Missouri– Blunt Doesn't Need the Assistance
The conservative group American Crossroads is pulling its advertizing from Missouri. It’s reason– Roy Blunt is too far ahead and doesn’t need the assistance. Blunt leads far left democrat Robin Carnahan by 9 pointss in the latest Rasmussen poll.
The Politico reported:
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee isn’t the only one pulling out of the Show-Me State.
POLITICO has learned that a day after announcing it was devoting $800,000 to Rep. Roy Blunt’s Senate campaign, American Crossroads is canceling its own advertising blitz in Missouri.
Its reason? Blunt doesn’t appear to need the assistance.
“The polls are good, the DSCC is out. As far as we’re concerned, this race is over,” said American Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio.
Collegio said the conservative organization that has devoted more than $20 million to hotly contested Senate contests decided to cancel its television reservations from Oct. 26 to Nov. 2 in all six of the state’s television markets.
“There’s no reason to believe anything fundamental will change between now and Nov. 2.,” he said, pointing to internal and public polling showing Blunt with a comfortable lead in the high single digits.
Collegio could not immediately say where the money dedicated to Blunt would be redirected.
A new Rasmussen Reports survey released Wednesday showed the southwest Missouri congressman leading Democrat Robin Carnahan by 9 points, 52 percent to 43 percent.
