The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee canceled a week of airtime in Constitutional Federalist Congressman Allen West’s Florida district starting Oct. 9, according to multiple sources tracking the buy.
Roll Call reports Democrats cite a substantial House Majority PAC buy — $1 million over a few weeks including Oct. 9 — as the reason they pulled their reservation in the West Palm Beach market that week.
House Republicans argued the cancellation is a sign the DCCC is cutting off the Florida race.
“By all appearances, national Democrats are throwing in the towel on Patrick Murphy’s sinking campaign,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Nat Sillin said. “The more voters get to know Murphy and his policies, the less they like him — and now even his party leaders are abandoning ship.”
