27. AZ: National Dems target 2 congressional races
Campaign panel plans $3.4M for 1st, 5th districts

By Amanda Lee Myers
The Associated Press

PHOENIX House Democrats have reserved $3.4 million worth of television advertising for two Arizona candidates for Congress, signaling the party's push to turn the state's congressional delegation blue.

Documentation obtained by The Associated Press shows the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved $1.7 million in ads each for Ann Kirkpatrick and Harry Mitchell to begin in September and October.

"That's a great deal of money, frankly, and it really just gives them a tremendous advantage," said Bruce Merrill, a pollster and political scientist at Arizona State University.

"It really means the national Democrats believe they can continue to make significant inroads in Arizona."
