August Attack: Six Secretly Funded Outside Groups Launch Ads Against Sherrod With Five Running Simultaneously As Third Party Spending Hits $15.2 Million In Effort To Keep Josh Mandel Afloat

Secretly funded third party groups have launched an all out attack against Sherrod Brown in the month of August, with six different groups attacking Sherrod including five different groups running ads simultaneously to lie about his record and keep Josh Mandel’s campaign afloat.

Pushing the total amount of outside spending against Sherrod Brown to $15.2 million, the six groups spending in August are:

Crossroads GPS – Spending $2.6 million this month

60 Plus – Spending 200k this month

Americans For Prosperity – Spending 76k on radio this month

Government Integrity Fund – Spending 557k this month

National Association Of Manufacturers – 256k this month

Chamber of Commerce – 354k this month

Total – $4 million

And Josh Mandel needs every penny. A small sampling of his August headlines are strikingly similar to every other month of Mandel’s campaign of errors.
