The Big DCCC Advertising Wave Gets Smaller


Hmm. Over at Say Anything, they notice…

Tonight comes word that said “triage” has happened. The DCCC had scheduled several big-money ad buys with media outlets in the state, but now those ad buys have been canceled.

From the Berg campaign via emailed press release:

“We are going to have to win these races one by one,” said Representative Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, conceding that the party would ultimately cut loose members who had not gained ground.

North Dakota television stations confirmed today that the DCCC television buy for the weeks of 9/27 and 10/5 have been canceled in North Dakota.

Oh, I’m sure the DCCC canceled the ads because they’re so confident. Why, look at the polls…

… Oh.
