America Action Network may soon become the latest national conservative group to throw cash into a July 17 primary runoff that will decide the GOP nominee to oppose Democratic Rep. Larry Kissell this fall.
POLITICO reports the group will begin a 750-point media buy on Tuesday to air an attack ad against Scott Keadle in Charlotte called "Layers" that aims to gin up support for his opponent, Richard Hudson. Hudson has also been backed by Young Guns Action Fund.
Keadle is supported by powerful free-market advocacy group The Club for Growth. With the help of its 75,000 members, the group has spent around $400,000 in the race. Read more about the race at the Charlotte Observer.
