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.
Ad of the week: Averigüe como votar por Josh Shapiro
Democrat Josh Shapiro may be running way ahead of his GOP opponent in Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial race, but his campaign doesn’t seem to be taking any votes for granted.

The top spending gubernatorial candidate on digital ads last week was Greg Abbott, who spent $651,313.
The state with the most expensive gubernatorial race online last week was Texas, where candidates spent a combined $1,065,738 on Meta + Google ads.
Democratic candidates in competitive races spent $1,921,841 on Meta + Google ads last week, while Republican candidates spent $1,001,261.
