PAC Puts $45K Into Independent Expenditure Against Black

U.S. Rep. Diane Black appears to be targeted by an independent expenditure campaign from a group called Congressional Elections PAC, reports Chas Sisk.
The group has purchased 30-second spots that have been airing during news broadcasts on Nashville TV stations. The unflattering images of Black make it pretty clear that it’s not from one of her supporters.
A Federal Election Commission filing on Thursday put the cost of the ad buy at $45,000. Congressional Elections PAC purchased the ads through Lewis Advertising, a Wetumpka, Ala., firm.
Black is facing former Rutherford County Republican Party Chair Lou Ann Zelenik in a rematch of sorts of the 2010 GOP primary in the 6th Congressional District. Early voting is under way; the election is Aug. 2.
