>>> let's bring back the panel. you are with an outside group. let's talk about how you are spending more money in the presidential race and senate race.
>> up $7.4 million in presidential and $4 million in the senate now.
>> not quite an even split there. where are you spending money in senate races?
>> on the air in montana, north dakota , ohio, and virginia, i believe.
>> are you a believer, like i am, that the super pac money makes a bilg bigger impact in senate and house races?
>> i guess we will find out this year. obviously, given how much less money goes into each of these races, there is that potential. which, i guess, i'm surprised you wouldn't want to spend more since could you have an outside influence.
