Super PAC spending in the 21st Congressional District GOP primary is up to $1.14 million.

American Crossroads, a political action committee cofounded by Republican strategist Karl Rove, on Wednesday, reported spending an addition $241,422.50 on television advertising and an additional $8,012 on literature opposing Matt Doheny.

This brings the PACs total spending opposing Doheny to $764,081.

Doheny, an investment fund manager from Watertown, is running against Elise Stefanik, a plywood company vice president and former White House policy adviser, in a June 24 primary for the Republican nomination in the 21st Congressional District, where U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, is not seeking re-election.

New York 2014, a political action committee associated with 2006 Republican gubernatorial candidate John Faso, on Wednesday reported spending $23,825.14 on direct mail advertising supporting Stefanik, in addition to television ads the PAC has aired supporting her.

This brings total New York 2014 spending in support of Stefanik, so far, to $366,299.28.

National Right to Life has spent $12,987.50 on direct mail advertising supporting Stefanik.

Super PACs, organized under Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Service code, cannot coordinate their advertising with a candidate.
