PACs pump $1.3M so far into Louisiana governor's race TV ads
BATON ROUGE- Outside political groups have poured $1.3 million into TV advertising for the Louisiana governor's race.
An analysis of ad spending by the Center for Public Integrity shows the spending, largely on attack ads, accounts for 29 percent of all $4.5 million in TV advertising devoted to the governor's race so far.
And, with a few deep-pocketed donors continuing to pour money into the political action committees without limits, voters likely can expect these independent groups to keep up the mudslinging until the Oct. 24 election.
The Center for Public Integrity analyzed data about political advertising on broadcast television from Kantar Media/CMAG, a media tracking firm that monitors 211 media markets around the country. These figures cover ads aired between Jan. 1, 2014, and Sept. 28, 2015.
