Georgia's Senate runoff elections spark $315 million in media spending so far
Georgia's two U.S. Senate runoff elections have seen a combined total of $315 million in media spending, according to a Friday estimate from AdImpact (https://adimpact.com/media-spending-in-ga-special-runoff/?utm_source=Weekly%20Recap&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=GA-Special-Runoff-Blog), an ad-tracking company that previously was known as Advertising Analytics. Some political analysts have predicted up to $1 billion in total campaign outlays (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/georgias-two-senate-runoff-elections-could-spark-1-billion-in-political-spending-analysts-say-11605213481) due to the two Jan. 5 elections, which will determine whether Republican lawmakers keep control of the Senate and provide a check on the Democratic-run House and incoming Biden administration.
