FLORENCE, Ky. (AP) — Officials in both political parties are making multimillion-dollar advertising decisions that offer clues about where the real Senate battlefields lie.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee went off the air Tuesday in Kentucky, where it has already spent more than $2 million to attack Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell.

At the same time, Democrats chose to put nearly $1 million behind Michelle Nunn in her bid for a Georgia seat now in Republican hands. Last week, Democrats put South Dakota on the board by investing in Rick Wieland's campaign against former GOP Gov. Mike Rounds.

Republicans are flooding Kansas with campaign help for Sen. Pat Roberts, who's in a tough re-election fight against independent candidate Greg Orman. Republicans must gain six seats to control the Senate.
