House Campaign Digital Spending, 10/9 - 10/15
How much are battleground House campaigns spending on Facebook + Google ads?
FWIW, here’s how much money battleground House campaigns spent last week on Meta ads (Facebook + Instagram) and Google ads (Google + YouTube) in races all over the country.
Ad of the week: I support Jared 🦞
The lobsterman vote in Maine is clearly no joke. Democrat Jared Golden’s 2nd district represents half the state’s coast, so it’s no wonder that the two-term conservative put out a video ad that simply features lobstermen and their family members stating that they support him for Congress. We’ll also note that Golden is running a smart ad campaign targeting the district’s seniors that promote his commitment to Social Security while highlighting his opponent’s moves to cut it.
The top spending House candidate on digital ads last week was Democrat Katie Porter in CA-47 who spent $107,380.
The state with the most expensive competitive House races online last week was California, where candidates in the state’s competitive races spent a combined $215,710 on Meta + Google ads.
Democratic candidates in competitive races spent $1,070,458 on Meta + Google ads last week, while Republican candidates spent $261,139.
