The Conservative PAC For Conservative Candidates

Des Moines Register: Outside group does last-minute pitch for Sam Clovis

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sam Clovis, who has had trouble raising enough campaign cash for TV advertising, is getting an assist from an outside group.

Citizens United Political Victory Fund is going up Tuesday with an ad featuring Rick Santorum speaking in support of Clovis, a fellow social conservative. The ad buy is $53,000 and the 30-second spot, called “Full-Spectrum Conservative,” will run through the June 3 primary, organizers told The Des Moines Register.

Clovis, a Sioux City college professor and radio talk show host, is struggling to pull off a last-minute defeat of GOP frontrunner Joni Ernst. Recent polling shows Ernst, a state senator who has so far aired two TV ads, in the lead, followed by a wealthy former energy company executive, Mark Jacobs, who has self-funded most of his campaign, including multiple TV ads. Clovis is in third place, with just a few days before the votes are counted.
