They Aren't Finished

In case you thought the influx of big money political ad buys was over, Crossroads GPS is here to prove you wrong. Last week, Crossroads has announced a $500,000 fiscal cliff ad buy targeting President Obama's tax plan.

Roll Call notes that this is just "the latest sign that outside groups that spent record sums on the recent election are shifting their unrestricted money to lobbying."

And now they are moving on to 2014 Senate races. A newly launched $240,000 radio buy targets five Democratic Senators - Sens. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.), Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) and first-term Sens. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) - all on the issue of the fiscal cliff.

If it wasn't clear before, it's evident now that big money influence groups aren't going to go away quietly.
