In just the last seven days, third-party groups spent $153,000 on independent expenditures to buy commercials, make phone calls and fund other activities to pressure Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) to vote against the health care plan, according to the Federal Election Commission. $153,000 later, Titus says she’s voting for the bill.

Citizens United Political Victory Fund, the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, ponied up $125,000 on a television commercial that ran this week and an additional $15,000 on another commercial and phone calls. Americans for Responsible Health Care, which ran ads to aid Scott Brown in this year’s Massachusetts Senate race, kicked in another $10,000.

Though Titus may not vote the way these third-party groups had hoped, the money hasn’t necessarily gone to waste. Republicans are working to weaken Titus as she heads into a potentially difficult re-election race this November. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has already targeted Titus for additional campaign support.
