COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - TV spots have picked up in the down-ticket races for Ohio’s attorney general, auditor, secretary of state and treasurer ahead of the November election.

According to the Center for Public Integrity, an estimated $1.3 million in ads for those contests have aired on local broadcast television so far this election cycle. The nonpartisan group analyzed state-level data from ad tracking service Kantar Media/CMAG.

Television spending in the governor’s race outpaces the other statewide campaigns at $6.9 million.

The data was updated Monday and doesn’t include ads airing over the week, such as a recent negative spot from Democratic candidate John Carney in the auditor’s race.

The group Moving Ohio Forward has spent an estimated $421,900 in negative TV spots against Attorney General Mike DeWine, a Republican.
