Ending Spending to drop another $2 million against Michelle Nunn

Ending Spending Action Fund is back for the final stretch.

The conservative Super PAC that has pounded Democrat Michelle Nunn for much of the year is putting up another $2 million on a two-week television and radio advertising buy, The Washington Post reports today. The group told the Post that it will stay active through Election Day.

The PAC has attacked Nunn for much of the year in various ways, from the traditional TV and radio spots, to a hit website, to a banner at the Georgia-Clemson game. It was also the first to use the "terrorist grant" attack (above) that has been widely debunked and denounced.

Ending Spending has liked to zig where others zag in this race: It went after Nunn while the GOP primary combatants were going after each other -- and even took a swipe at Rep. Phil Gingrey, who was considered a weak general election prospect. FEC filings show it has spent $1.5 million attacking Nunn this year.

As we mentioned the other day, the outside party and Super PAC money had slowed in the Senate race. Perhaps this is the start of another wave.
