Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), the boss of the House Democratic political operation, has scooped up tv ad time in 32 of the top tier congressional district races--including the two biggies in Illinois.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved $2.33 million in air time for Dem Tammy Duckworth, running against Peter Roskam in the west suburban 6th CD and $2.32 million for Rep. Melissa Bean (D-Ill.) who is being challenged by David McSweeney in the north suburban eighth CD.
These numbers come from The Hill, a newspaper covering Capitol Hill.
The Hill article said the House Republicans have not yet bought time, quoting a spokesman for the GOP House political comittee. Emanuel needs to pickup 15 seats for the Dems to take control of the House.
If you live in the 6th or 8th district....will ads make a difference? Are you a decided voter?
