The Politico reports on a 4-month, $40 million media effort “centered on attacks on Senator John McCain.”
The move comes after the groups that had been expected to spearhead attacks on McCain – the Fund for America and Progressive Media USA’s previous incarnation, the Campaign to Defend America – failed to raise the money needed to dent McCain’s armor.
“We’re a little behind where we need to be,” he said.
But after a dinner Tuesday night at the Manhattan apartment of liberal megadonor George Soros, at which Brock and the consultant Paul Begala laid out the group’s plans, Brock said his group now has commitments worth $7.5 million – almost twice what the Fund for America is expected to report raising in the first quarter of this year. He said the group would begin running ads before it meets its $40 million goal.
