06.04.14 Daily News Clips - morning edition

June 4, 2014: AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

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.
