| The NRCC has reserved over $8.8 million in ad time for 14 House races across the country, 11 of which are defensive moves. The Politico has the scoop while TPM EC picks up the details:
Really interesting that Idaho's 1st is among the committee's first wave here, and the sums that the cash-strapped committee is prepared to spend on defense in CO-04 and PA-03 is eye-popping. The Politico notes that the NRCC has reserved about two weeks worth of time (and more in some instances) for most of these races. The bad news for Team Red is that the DCCC has already blocked off $53 million for 55 districts.
In fact, the DCCC plans to outspend the NRCC in most of these 14 races, including: AL-02 ($598), FL-16 ($1.5M), LA-04 ($714K), LA-06 ($723K), MN-03 ($1.4M), MO-06 ($798K), NC-08 ($1.6M), NM-01 ($1.3M), NV-03 ($916K), and OH-01 ($928K). (UPDATE: I've updated the chart above to give you a district-by-district comp.)
Of course, these plans are completely adjustable, but with not much more cash in the bank than the size of this early reservation, the NRCC doesn't have much room to pivot.
