Progressive group to spend $70M targeting Trump online

WASHINGTON — A progressive organization plans to spend over $70 million targeting Donald Trump online, a move that comes amid worries that Democrats aren't doing enough to counter the president's massive ad spending on Facebook and Google.

Leaders of a group called ACRONYM said Monday that they will run ads on popular social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube through the 2020 election season.

ACRONYM's founder, Tara McGowan, has for months been critical of Democrats' approach to Trump online. Ad disclosure data shows Trump has spent tens of millions on online advertisements, with a limited response from Democrats.

McGowan says that's helped shape the narrative of the race to his advantage.
