Good morning:
Fun fact, $4.5 million will buy a :30 TV ad during the 2015 Super Bowl, but $4.5 million couldn’t buy a single state senator for the Alabama Education Association. That’s right, last night AEA managed one Senate runoff, but otherwise went home pretty much empty handed after spending $4.5 million. More details can be found in this memo

What else can $4.5 million buy? Tweet me your ideas and we’ll feature the best idea later this afternoon.

June 3, 2014: AFC Daily News Clips – afternoon edition

Good afternoon:
All eyes are on the Yellowhammer State. No, not on the $6.8 million Nick Saban will make next season but on the $1 million+ the Alabama Education Association is spending to elect anti-education reform candidates. Tips/stories we’ve missed or should highlight – don’t hesitate to send me an email or tweet. And, if you have ever trouble viewing this on your phone, you can always view or clips online.

Stay tuned for tonight’s results!
