A Democratic-oriented super PAC reported late Friday that it has spent over $1 million against a Republican U.S. Senate candidate.
The Senate Majority Fund reported that it spent $1,018,130 against Thom Tillis, R-N.C., in the U.S. Senate race in North Carolina. The Super PAC reported paying $999,000 on 3/26 to Waterfront Strategies (DC) for media buys as independent expenditures opposing Tillis. The PAC also paid $19,130 on 3/26 to SKDKnickerbocker (DC) for media production costs as an independent expenditure against Tillis.
Tillis is Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives and is running against U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., in the 2014 election.
