The National Republican Senatorial Committee will begin running advertisements in Maine on Wednesday, two party sources told Hotline on Call. The committee's independent expenditure wing will spend just over $500,000 on 2,000 gross ratings points of television and radio advertisements to run over the next two weeks.

The strategy has already created some strange bedfellows: An outside group run by former Republican Governors Association officials has spent about $250,000 on advertisements touting Dill as "a Democrat you can feel good about."


Are Republicans being smart or wasting money?

King fell below 50% in the recent poll, if they can beef of the Democrat, he will take votes from King. All that Summer's then needs to do is try and consolidate more of the smaller Romney vote.

In the wake of Missouri, it is worth trying it with about a million and see if it is feesible.

Probably just an attempt on the part of the Republicans to expand an otherwise regressing map of winnable seats. The Democrat is only averaging 8%, so its hard to see King losing this.

Well the critical thing is for the Dem to get up above 20%. This is a trial balloon. If King looses more ground and both Summers and Dill gain, then I expect they will pour more in $2 to $3 million more.

Well couldn't the Dems come in here and prop up King. From what I've heard King's got a big war chest too. This reeks of desperation for the GOP.

Waste of money by the Maine GOP; King is still enormously popular and will pretty easily win.
