Dems, GOP have spent $329 million on ads in Georgia Senate runoff 1

At least $329 million has been spent since Election Day on advertising ahead of the two Georgia Senate run-offs next month.

The staggering number, reported by ad tracking firm Kantar/CMAG, comes as both parties fight for the Senate majority.

All eyes have focused on two Senate battles in Georgia, both with GOP incumbents. The current balance of the Senate is 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats, meaning that whichever way these two seats go will decide which party controls the upper chamber of Congress.

If Democrats were to win both seats and keep the body evenly split, tie votes would be broken by the vice president, Kamala Harris, giving Democrats a single-vote majority.

Interest in the two Senate contests has continued to rise as both parties express confidence that they can emerge victorious.

President-elect Joe Biden narrowly carried Georgia over President Trump, marking the first time a Democrat carried the Southern state since Bill Clinton defeated former President George H.W. Bush in 1992.

Democratic strategists have said once-red Georgia is within reach for their party, but GOP analysts have argued it will be harder for the left to convince their voters to come out in an election without Trump on the ballot.

In order to carry the state, however, both parties will need to spend heavily to maintain relevance in an increasingly expensive race. Some have speculated that the advertising spending alone could approach $500 million.

The first race has incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler facing off against Rev. Raphael Warnock, the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where civil rights icon the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once preached.

The second race pits Jon Ossoff, a Democrat, against incumbent Sen. David Perdue.

On the GOP side, longtime Republican adviser Karl Rove is overseeing a wildly successful fundraising effort that has brought in over four times as much in donations as Democrats.

Republicans brought in $95 million between Election Day and Nov. 23 for the Georgia run-offs, according to Bloomberg. In that same time span, Democrats only brought in $18 million.
