Mitch McConnell’s allies commit an extra $21 million to six key Senate races

Goal Thermometer

The GOP group the Senate Leadership Fund, which is close to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, announced on Friday that it would spend an additional $21 million:

• IN-Sen: Spending an additional $4.5 million, bringing total planned spending to $8.5 million

• MO-Sen: Spending an additional $5.3 million, bringing total planned spending to $7.8 million

• NC-Sen: Spending an additional $900,000, bringing total planned spending to $9 million

• NH-Sen: Spending an additional $7 million, bringing total planned spending to $22.8 million

• NV-Sen: Spending an additional $2.3 million, bringing total planned spending to $8.3 million

• PA-Sen: Spending an additional $1 million, bringing total planned spending to $7.5 million

SLF is also the latest group to slash their spending in the Ohio Senate race, where polls constantly show Republican Sen. Rob Portman ahead. According to the Washington Post, the organization has cut nearly $7 million from this contest, and they plan to just spend $1.2 million now. SLF has also not added any money to Florida, where they still plan to spend $10.8 million to help Sen. Marco Rubio.

Only a few weeks ago, there was little outside spending in Missouri on either side. That’s very much changed, and the SLF’s extra $5.3 million is only the latest sign that, despite the Show Me State’s red hue, Republican Sen. Roy Blunt is in a tough race with Democrat Jason Kander.

Election Day is coming soon, and our Senate candidates need our help to fight back. Please chip in $1 to each member of the Daily Kos Senate slate.

Cartoon: Donald Trump’s tremendous charities

Trump would clean out the “take a penny, leave a penny” tray before donating his actual money to charity. His charitable shenanigans have been well documented in a series of stories by David Farenthold. There’s also the grifting of campaign funds to pay companies owned by himself and his family.

If he ends up winning, it’ll be a long-con gone wrong.
