Raleigh News & Observer:
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is reserving major ad time in North Carolina.
The national group's ad buyer, Great American Media, has reserved several hundred thousand dollars of air time on behalf of Democratic candidate Kay Hagan at Raleigh TV station WRAL starting in mid-September and running through the November election.
The committee is also reportedly reserving time at stations across the state, potentially spending as much as $5 or $6 million.
DSCC spokesman Matthew Miller would neither confirm nor deny the amount, citing an official policy against discussing potential ad buys, but he said they are bullish on Hagan's chances against incumbent Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole.
