Politico’s Ally Mutnick reported on Thursday night that the conservative Congressional Management Fund has cut $450,000 from its deliberate advert purchase in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District for Oct. 14 to Oct. 20 in what she referred to as “an indication of no confidence in GOP nominee Dale Crafts.”
Sadly for Crafts, the CLF isn’t alone in making this willpower about his prospects for unseating freshman Democratic Rep. Jared Golden. The DCCC scaled back its ad reservation in late September, and Mutnick adds that the NRCC is “already off air.” Every poll that’s been released has additionally proven a transparent lead for Golden on this northern Maine seat, which Donald Trump carried 51-41 4 years in the past.
We have added this new details about the CLF and NRCC spending, or lack thereof, to our Daily Kos Elections 2020 House race triage tracker, which we’ll be repeatedly updating by way of Election Day.
