House Majority PAC Places Early Television Reservations

April 18, 2014

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC today announced that it has placed an initial round of television reservations for the final weeks of the election cycle in 24 districts. These reservations represent only an initial list of races in which HMP expects to spend on television this cycle.

The reservation total is approximately $6.5 million. This comes on the heels of a record-breaking fundraising quarter with HMP raising over $5.2 million and over $12.7 for the cycle.

In 2012, HMP did not make its initial television reservations until July. HMP ended up spending in over 50 races last cycle.

“By placing these reservations early, we will make our dollars go further and ensure we have the air time to effectively fight back against the flood of Koch brothers’ dollars,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of House Majority PAC. “We are making wise investments in those districts where we expect we will need to counter negative attacks in the final weeks of the campaign.  We will be making additional television reservations later in the cycle, as we see how campaigns and races develop.”
