Politico: Chamber reserves $280k in Maine Senate race


-By Maggie Haberman

September 17, 2012- The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which was up earlier in the cycle in support of Maine Republican Senate hopeful Charlie Summers, has reserved new time starting tomorrow in the state, according to two sources tracking TV air time.

The $280,000 buy goes through Sept. 30.

The NRSC recently plunked down $600,000 in the state, where they're trying to make a show after they adjusted their map in the wake of Todd Akin's controversial comments (national Republicans pulled out of Missouri a short time later when it became clear he wouldn't drop out).

Summers is facing independent Angus King, and Democratic hopeful Cynthia Dill, and hopes to pull the majority vote share over the two.
