Super PAC backing Scott Walker announces $9 million ad buy

Walker says media misinterpreted border comments

A super PAC backing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s run for the Republican presidential nomination has announced a $9.25 million ad buy for three early voting states, expanding on a $7 million television ad campaign starting in Iowa next week.

The ad buy announced Wednesday by officials with the Unintimidated PAC comes as Walker tries to right his campaign after shooting to the top of the field in Iowa earlier this year, only to plummet in recent polls.

The new ad purchase includes $8 million in South Carolina, $800,000 in New Hampshire and $400,000 in Nevada.

Walker’s Iowa ad campaign begins next week and runs until the Feb. 1 caucuses, but the effort in the other three states won’t begin until later this year or early next year.
