DCCC IE Reserves $28 Million in First Round of TV and Digital Ads for 2024 Cycle

DCCC Independent Expenditure (IE) early investment includes more than double the initial digital reservations from 2022 cycle

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced its first round of ad reservations for the 2024 cycle. This initial round of reservations – totaling $28 million – includes $16 million for broadcast television and $12 million in digital. The DCCC is prioritizing securing inventory in crowded and expensive broadcast media markets and in states with competitive races at the top of the ticket.

The $12 million reserved on digital is twice the amount the DCCC initially reserved in the 2022 cycle. By leveraging streaming and digital platforms, the committee is diversifying its media mix to reach voters in an increasingly fragmented media landscape. All told, this represents the opening salvo in Democrats’ efforts to win back the House this November.

“The stakes for the House Majority couldn’t be higher. House Republicans are obsessed with pursuing a dangerous and extreme agenda to take away reproductive freedom, cut Social Security, and give more tax cuts to big corporations and the ultra wealthy at the expense of working families,” said Julie Merz, DCCC Executive Director. “Our focus on streaming and digital aligns with the new realities of how and where voters are consuming information. This approach ensures that we are equipped to effectively elevate the threat of GOP extremism and reach the voters who will decide the battle for the people’s House.”
