Democrats to Drop Half a Million Dollars to Try to Save Weprin in NY-9


Big money coming in:

Democrats are showing the clearest sign yet of concern ahead of next Tuesday's special election in New York's 9th District - the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is going up on air with an expensive television buy in the campaign's closing days.According to buy information obtained by Hotline On Call, the DCCC has made a $483,500 TV ad buy in the district, starting tomorrow through Monday. --National Journal's Hotline On Call blog

The buy is a bad sign for Democrats: Just weeks ago party insiders said they had no concerns about Republican candidate Bob Turner winning the race.
