The Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC), the campaign arm of Senate Democrats, is reportedly spending $33 million on ads this fall to help protect its majority and vulnerable members.
The DSCC will spend the majority of the $33 million in advertising reserves to help its most vulnerable members ahead of the November election, according to Politics.
A majority in the upper house is at stake, as the Senate is split evenly 50/50, meaning the Democrats can’t lose any of the seats and the Republicans only need one. The bulk of the publicity reserves will go to Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D) of Nevada, Sen. Mark Kelly (D) of Arizona, Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) of Georgia and Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) of New Hampshire.
The report notes that $33 million would be split among vulnerable member states: $8.4 million in Nevada, $7.5 million in Arizona, $7 million in Georgia and $4 million in New Hampshire.

DSCC Executive Director Christie Roberts said the DSCC now reserves the right to “communicate on television in the most effective way, to create the contrast between our strong Democratic candidates and the weak GOP candidates, and to help to ensure that Democrats protect and extend our majority in the Senate.”
For the two States, the DSCC goes on the offensive. They are prepared to spend $3 million in Pennsylvania since the seat is open after Republican Sen. Pat Toomey announced his retirement, and $3 million in Wisconsin against Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who is running for re-election.
The $33 million is just the first big announcement booking made by DSCC. There are also other outside organizations on both sides that have reservations, such as the Senate Democratic Majority PAC and the Republican Senate Leadership Fund, as well as the Republican campaign arm of the Senate, the National Republican Senate Committee. (NRSC).
However, the campaign weapons would spend next to nothing compared to outside groups. For example, the Republican Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC closely tied to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, announced last week that it had already reserved $141 million worth of advertising space in the fall. .
