DSCC cancels ad buys in Missouri
The DSCC is moving TV ad money out of Missouri, a sign that the Senate race may be moving beyond Democrats’ grasp.
Four Republican sources who monitor media buying and three Missouri TV stations have confirmed to Hotline On Call that the DSCC has canceled reservations from Oct. 11 to Oct. 25. The DSCC still has reservations in Missouri for the last week before Election Day.
“Yes, the weeks of Oct. 12 and Oct. 19 have been canceled for the DSCC in our station,” Sean Kellerman of WDAF, the Kansas City, MO, FOX affiliate, said.
“They have requested cancellations,” said Amy Warren of KCTV, Kansas City’s CBS affiliate.
This was one of the few Republican held seats that Democrats thought they had a shot at this year, but as they are forced to defend seats in Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Nevada Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia, they have to start weighing their priorities.
