A political action committee affiliated with digital progressive group ACRONYM announced Monday that it would launch a $75 million digital advertising campaign to take on President Trump.
Why it matters: Republicans and Trump have kept the digital edge they seized in 2016, which has put Democrats on notice.
Details: The campaign, called “Four is Enough” plans to spend the bulk of its cash on digital ads between now and election day, with a large amount before the primary, according to a statement.
- The campaign is led by a political action committee called PACRONYM that’s led by ACRONYM CEO and founder Tara McGowan. It will be advised by David Plouffe, former campaign manager of former President Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
- The ad spend will be focused on major platforms, like Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube, as well as digital TV and audio platforms like Hulu and Pandora.
- States that will be targeted include Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.
