Super PACs Spending More Than $10 Million to Attack Trump in Florida, Report Says
A coalition of super PACs is now spending upwards of $10 million to attack Donald Trump in Florida, according to a new report.
The New York Times reported Monday:
“Outside groups are moving to deploy more than $10 million in new attack ads across Florida and millions more in Illinois, casting Mr. Trump as a liberal, a huckster and a draft dodger.”
“This is the biggest barrage that Trump will have seen waged against him at one time,” said David Catanese, senior politics writer for the U.S. News and World Report.
But will it work?
At this point in the race, “Trump is pretty defined with most voters,” noted Catanese. “A lot of people have made up their minds about this guy.”
One of the ads, put together by the America Future Fund, accuses the GOP front-runner of being too vulgar to be president.
The 30-second spot will start airing tomorrow in northern Florida, Steve Harrigan reported.
He said the group’s message is likely targeting senior citizens, who will make up at least one third of Republican voters in next week’s state primary.
