Responding to increased spending by Republican outside groups (Crossroads GPS this morning announced an $8.1 million spending blitz across 11 House districts), the Democratic-aligned House Majority PAC is making new buys in a slew of House districts:
$115,000 in California's 7th District, where GOP Rep. Dan Lungren is being challenged by Democrat Ami Bera.
$130,000 in the Rockford media market for Illinois's 17th District, where GOP Rep. Bobby Schilling faces Democrat Cheri Bustos.
$200,000 in the Marquette and Traverse City media markets for Michigan's 1st District, where GOP Rep. Dan Benishek (R) is facing state Rep. Gary McDowell.
$175,000 in Indiana's 2nd District, where Democratic Army veteran Brendan Mullen faces 2010 GOP nominee Jackie Walorski.
$500,000 in Colorado's 6th District (on top of a buy for an ad they announced earlier today), where GOP Rep. Mike Coffman is being challenged by Democratic state Rep. Joe Miklosi.
