Blackburn reserves $1 million worth of ad time on Fox News

Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s U.S. Senate campaign has reserved $1 million worth of ad time on Fox News between April 27 and the primary election on Aug. 2.

Campaign adviser Ward Baker says in a memo that it was key to reserve the premium statewide inventory during the 14-week ad run now because of the crowded field of candidates in the governor’s race and various congressional contests will drive up demand for limited airtime.

Blackburn faces former U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher in the GOP primary to succeed Republican Sen. Bob Corker, who is retiring. Former Gov. Phil Bredesen is running for the Democratic nomination.

The Blackburn campaign memo follows below:
