Pro-Obama Super PAC makes $243,000 ad buy in Michigan


Politico reports Priorities USA, the pro-Obama Super PAC, has made its first major ad buy with airtime in Michigan totaling almost $243,000 in advance of the Feb. 28 Republican primary in the state:

The flight begins on Wednesday and ends the day of the Michigan primary, with 30-second spots at about 575 points in the Detroit market  for about $144,795, the source said.

There’s also about 500 points in the Flint market, totaling $30,020, and another $67,390 in cable buys in those two markets.

Priorities USA raised $59,000 in January, according to the Federal Election Commission. Almost all of it came from Obama fundraiser John W. Rogers, who donated $50,000. The Obama campaign announced on Feb. 6 that it would start supporting Priorities USA.
