Probably the biggest news is the report that the DCCC has begun the process of cutting loose Rep. Patrick Murphy (D, PA-08) and candidate John Callahan (D CAND, PA-15). Insert the usual nonsense from the usual Democratic spokesmen; but the truth of the matter is that both Rep. Charlie Dent and candidate Michael Fitzpatrick are favored to win their races, so expect that the other half of that DCCC ad money is going to vanish next week, too. Note, by the way, that this news effectively takes off of the board one of the few pickup hopes that the Democrats still had (PA-15).
Lastly, in MI-01: it doesn’t really make much sense to actually buy ad time for a candidate if you just have to pull your attack ads later for being hideously inaccurate. Dr. Dan Benishek is claiming victory, and can you blame him? You have to wonder how much longer the DCCC is going to bother with McDowell at this point.
