The National Republican Senate Committee put $849,205 into the Michigan Senate race on the 1st. The Michigan State Republican Party has been spending steadily, although in small amounts, all along in this race. I wonder if this one is under the radar? Certainly, Michigan is not participating in the general economic well being. The unemployment rate in Michigan for September was 7.1% (against a national rate of 4.5%).
The Reps dropped $1.4 million into Maryland in the last few days - and $600K into Montana. Tennessee appears to be in hand with Missouri and Virginia getting the lion's share of the spending. It would be a real kick if Michigan and Maryland went in the win column. I'd trade away DeWine and Chaffee for Bouchard and Steele any day of the week.
