The pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action is pulling a combined $4.5 million in ad buys from Florida and Wisconsin in order to focus their resources on states where the polls indicate a tighter race, reports the New York Times. The group's fundraising has picked up in recent months after struggling to raise money earlier in the year.
Bill Burton, a senior strategist for the group, said Wednesday that Priorities would also be buying more time in Colorado, Iowa, Nevada and Virginia in the coming days.
According to preliminary advertising totals, Priorities moved $4.5 million out of Florida and Wisconsin markets. But the group remains on the air in some markets, including Orlando, West Palm Beach and Green Bay.
“We are not leaving any states,” Mr. Burton said. “Based on our extensive polling and targeting data, in some states we are shifting efforts into some key markets.”
