Click Bishop's campaign has paid for ads on Facebook, contrary to what I reported in my earlier post "Facebook lends insight to Republican race for Senate Seat C."
The Ralph Seekins campaign contacted us and pointed out that, in fact, filings with the Alaska Public Offices Commission do show a sizable buy on Facebook by the Bishop campaign.
I had looked up Facebook spending through APOC's campaign expenditures search function, which missed a $5,927 expense to AK Political for "News Ads/Facebook." Because the money went to AK Political and not directly to Facebook, I missed it and I apologize for the error.
How much of that went to Facebook ads is unclear. According to APOC reports the Seekins campaign has spend about $450 on Facebook ads since mid July.
We've updated the earlier blog post and, of course, it will be updated if and when it might go into the newspaper.
