Georgia’s two U.S. Senate runoff elections have seen a combined total of $315 million in media spending, according to a Friday estimate from AdImpact, an ad-tracking company that previously was known as Advertising Analytics. Some political analysts have predicted up to $1 billion in total campaign outlays due to the two Jan. 5 elections, which will determine whether Republican lawmakers keep control of the Senate and provide a check on the Democratic-run House and incoming Biden administration.
