Williams blew $1.3 million on the primary, just like he is very good at spending Other People's Money as Kentucky's Senate President where he was the only consistent problem in the last ten years of exponentially rising deficits and debt. He wasn't discriminant with that money. The page content is analyzed and if it aligns with traditional Republican themes, an ad is automatically placed. Apparently, his marketing guy also authorized ads to run on any site that carries Kentucky politics. I've seen his banner ads on cn|2 Politics, usually adjacent to my anti-Williams comments! He even had a banner ad on a liberal blog.
This has been the weirdest race. Nobody paid any attention until the last week despite all our best efforts to interest people in Phil Moffett, but then suddenly voters are waking up, and they're not waking up in a Williams mood! The two polls showed Williams with a good lead, although narrowing significantly on the second poll. These were essentially name recognition polls before the voters cared about this off-year election. As the electorate became even a little educated, public opinion has broken sharply in favor of Phil Moffett. I think Phil is going to win this!
