RGJ tallies ad expenses for CD-2 election

Ray Hagar of the Reno Gazette-Journal reported Republican Mark Amodei and Democrat Kate Marshall have spent a combined $1.2 million in regional television advertising for their September 13 special election.

Hagar includes other CD-2 spending data such as:

  • Amodei has outspent Marshall 3 to 1.
  • Marshall's campaign has spent $337,640 with no help from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
  • Amodei's campaign has spent $295,000 but outside organizations including the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee have spent over $800,000 on his behalf.
The article is a good read and shows the competitiveness of and national interest in the special election.
