How much are battleground gubernatorial campaigns spending on Facebook + Google ads?
FWIW, here’s how much money battleground Gubernatorial campaigns spent last week on Meta ads (Facebook + Instagram) and Google ads (Google + YouTube) in several key states.

She’s been consistently leading the polls for months now, and in the final stretch her campaign is hammering in the major points they’ve been driving all year: education, low taxes, and bipartisanship.

The top spending gubernatorial candidate on digital ads last week was Josh Shapiro, who spent $568,974.
The state with the most expensive gubernatorial race online last week was Texas, where candidates spent a combined $782,570 on Meta + Google ads.
Democratic candidates in competitive races spent $1,787,286 on Meta + Google ads last week, while Republican candidates spent $1,053,133.
