The top outside super PAC for Senate Democrats is bankrolling a new $6.5 million TV and digital ad campaign hitting Sens. David Perdue (R-GA) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) over their personal financial dealings in office, as Georgia’s crucial runoff elections for U.S. Senate intensify.
The group, Senate Majority PAC, is attacking Perdue over recent reporting that found the senator’s stock trading activities warranted an investigation from federal authorities, and taking Loeffler to task by linking the scrutiny into her investment activity to her stance on coronavirus relief legislation. Details of the ad campaign, which began hitting Georgia airwaves Wednesday night, were shared exclusively with The Daily Beast.
The ad blitz comes ahead of the Dec. 14 start date for early voting in the runoff elections, which will decide which party controls the U.S. Senate after election day on Jan. 5. The Democratic candidates, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, have increasingly hit their GOP opponents over their investment activity, as Congress dithers on relief aid while the economic impacts of the pandemic deepen.
