From Minnesota to the San Diego suburbs, Democrats are throwing millions of dollars into TV ads tethering House Republican candidates to Donald Trump.The big question is whether Trump can give Democrats enough ammunition for an unlikely gain of 30 House seats, enough for majority control.From this election cycle's start in January 2015 through last Wednesday, Democrats and their allies spent nearly $7 million on almost 10,000 broadcast TV spots using Trump in 22 House districts, according to Kantar Media's political ad tracker.Among Democrats, the DCCC alone aired nearly 4,000 spots costing around $2.3 million – more money and spots tying House Republicans to Trump than any other Democratic group, ally or candidate.The House Majority PAC, which helps House Democrats, has spent nearly $400,000 on 1,300 ads for House races that mention Trump, including along California's central coast and near Tampa, Florida.Republicans say Democrats are overrating the damage Trump could do to GOP House candidates.Democrats have spent around $1.1 million on ads linking Trump to the four-term congressman, more than in any other House race, according to Kantar Media.
