A Republican focused super PAC dumped a fresh $1 million into television advertising for House races in the South and Pennsylvania.

The YG Action Fund, an outside group started by former aides to Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), brought its total in television advertising buys to roughly $4 million, the group said.

The biggest buy is in North Carolina, where YG Action bought an additional $454,000 in ads to run between Oct. 16 and Nov. 6 in support of Richard Hudson, who is running in a Charlotte area seat against Rep. Larry Kissell. Kissell is seen by Republicans as one of the most vulnerable North Carolina Democrats, and YG is looking to capitalize — it has spent more than $800,000 on the race.

YG also reserved another $192,500 in advertising for David Rouzer in the Raleigh-Durham media market, bringing its total there to $733,945. Rouzer is facing Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.).

In Pennsylvania, Keith Rothfus is the beneficiary of $239,000 in additional TV time in the Pittsburgh market for his race against Rep. Mark Critz (D-Pa.).
