Dems reserve air time in Florida, though not in Miami

Democrats looking to expand their majority in the House have reserved $2.5 million for Florida television ads this fall -- though notably not in South Florida, where three Dems are itching to take out Miami's three Cuban-American Republicans.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved $1 million in the Orlando TV market for ads in late September and October to take on Rep. Tom Feeney, R-Oviedo. And the group has set aside $1.5 million in ad time to bolster the case for Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-Palm Beach Gardens, a top GOP target.

No word yet on whether the Miami races will be added, though the DCCC notes that the ad buys are always subject to change. All together, the DCCC has reserved nearly $35 million on ads in 31 districts, Politico reports, "offering a sneak preview of the central campaign battlegrounds and the party’s most vulnerable incumbents."
