Republican Governors Association spent $1.2M on anti-Balukoff ads

The Republican Governors Association spent $1.2 million on an advertising campaign aimed at tying Democratic candidate for Idaho governor A.J. Balukoff, a Mitt Romney supporter, to President Barack Obama. “The Republican Governors Association was a key investor in Governor Otter’s re-election victory, spending $1.2 million on paid media,” the group said in a news release tonight. “The RGA ran three television ads in Idaho during the election, detailing Democrat A.J. Balukoff’s liberal record and his support for President Obama’s failed agenda.”

RGA Chairman Chris Christie said, “Governor Otter’s leadership in Idaho will continue to be a source of great strength for the state, and the Republican Governors Association is proud to congratulate him on his re-election.”
