coalesced airing roughly 8500 ads blasting GOP front-runner Donald Trump according to a Center for Public Integrity review of new data provided by Kantar Media/CMAG The ad blitz however may be too little too late Trumps Republican rivals have been slow to attack him and only recently have singled him out on the airwaves "I dont think [Republicans] saw him as a true threat" said Travis Ridout co-director of the Wesleyan Media Project which tracks political advertising "He breaks the mold of what weve seen in the past 50 years" Todays GOP nominating contests in 12 states come after a three-state winning streak for Trump Most recently he captured 46 percent of the vote at the Nevada caucuses heightening anxiety among the Republican establishment wing that once doubted his ascendance "People are starting to panic" said Johanna Dunaway a political science professor at Texas A&M University "So now you see the efforts to try to stop his path to nomination" Conservative Solutions PAC a super PAC supporting Sen Marco Rubio of Florida waged a $45 million anti-Trump campaign in just the past week according to federal campaign finance filings Ahead of Super Tuesday Conservative Solutions PAC saturated the TV airwaves launched digital ads and even turned to the mobile messaging application Snapchat At a rally in Georgia on Saturday attendees could use a Snapchat

elections Club for Growth aired nearly 1000 ads ahead of Super Tuesday Meanwhile American Future Fund a group with ties to conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch released three ads this week featuring former Trump University students who say they were scammed and forced into debt by Trumps educational endeavor which is now facing lawsuits in New York and California "I was trumped by

Correction: The original version of this story misstated the number of ads aired against Trump In all 8500 were aired Contact us at [email protected] 21-year-old mother Kahdejah Johnson was told two years ago that she’d secured a spot at the Ezra Prentice Homes a quiet housing project in Albany she felt confident she’d found a stable home to raise her newborn son With its manicured lawns and tidy beige row houses the Ezra Prentice Homes are a far cry from the crumbling housing projects of large cities “When people come into town they’re like ‘These are your projects These are condos’” says Johnson But today Johnson is losing sleep over how close her house is to railroad tracks congested day and night with tanker cars carrying crude oil visible just outside her bedroom window The fear of an accident is so great that Johnson has taken to evacuating her apartment some nights to spend the night at her mother’s home further from the tracks "Now Im afraid to be in my own home" she says “Do you know how fast we could die here” Albany is one of a growing number of cities where residents like Johnson fear the devastating consequences of accidents involving railcars filled with crude oil They have reason to fearon July 6 2013 a train carrying oil derailed in the Canadian town of Lac-Megantic causing an explosion that destroyed more than 30 buildings and killed more than 40 people This past Sunday Johnson and other Albany residents held a vigil to commemorate the Lac-Megantic derailmentand draw attention to the growing opposition to transporting crude oil by rail “Jo-Annie Lapointe Melissa Roy Maxime Dubois Joanie Turmel” participants in the vigil intoned into a microphone naming Lac-Megantic residents killed in the explosions In a line they held portraits of each of the deceased and read their names pinning the pictures to a black metal fence “You may not say that they lived right next door to you but they were your neighbors” said Pastor McKinley Johnson who officiated part of the ceremony “You may not say that you understand all the language but they’re your sister and your brother” As in Lac-Megantic oil tankers containing highly flammable crude oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota and Montana roll right through their residential areas Rows of train-cars filled with crude oil often stand idle for hours on the tracks that hug the curves of the housing project so tightly only 15 feet at most separate the two in some areas “Once I found out that these are the same tanks that were in Canada I was like ‘Oh my God someone pray for us We’re in danger’” Johnson said This fear is a consequence of the unconventional oil boom in states like North Dakota where for the last several years producers have been using hydrofracking techniques to pump oil previously locked in underground shale rock The new oil fields have helped America’s oil production rise to a 28-year high But that crude oil has to get to refineries most of which are located in coastal citiesand much of that oil is moving by rail Nationally transport of crude oil by train has jumped 45-fold between 2008 and 2013 according to a recent Congressional Research Service report While the US has yet to experience a rail catastrophe on the scale of Lac-Megantic the country has had its share of close calls The National Transportation Safety Board counts five “significant accidents” of trains containing crude oil in the United States in the past year alone The latest in Lynchburg Virginia saw a train carrying crude Bakken oil derail and burst into flames in the town’s center this April producing black plumes of smoke and billows of flames taller than buildings nearby The crude oil also spilled into the James River though one was injured The worrying trend has opened a new front to the national environmental debate Some 40 cities and towns across the country scheduled similar events to mark Lac-Megantics one-year anniversary Many of the rallies will take place in the usual hotbeds of environmental activism in places like Seattle and Portlandbut also in blue-collar tows like Philadelphia and Detroit where activists will voice demands ranging from a moratorium on oil-trains traffic to increased safety controls But the problem has also presented environmentalists with a conundrum One of the factors behind the rapid rise of railroad shipment of crude oil has been the shortage of oil pipelines which could move greater quantities of oil from landlocked states to coastal refineries Front and center to this debate is the multi-billion dollar Keystone XL pipeline project which would connect the oil sands of western Canada to the Gulf Coast but which President Obama has yet to approvein part because of objections raised by environmentalists who fear the potential for a spill Fewer pipelines has meant more oil moved via rail "If Keystone had been built we wouldn’t be moving nearly the volume of oil that we’re moving by rail” said Charles Ebinger the director of the Energy Security Initiative at the Brookings Institution That has exposed the Keystones opponents to criticism that by standing in the way of pipeline projects they are raising the risk of rail accidents Though hazardous material like crude oil makes its way safely via rail 99998 percent of the time according to the Association of American Railroads a plethora of research suggests that pipelines result in fewer spillage incidents personal injuries and fatalities than rail That includes an authoritative environmental review the State Department released last January which concluded that “there is… a greater potential for injuries and fatalities associated with rail transport relative to pipelines” Still environmentalists like Ethan Buckner of ForestEthics the group coordinating the string of events to commemorate the Lac-Megantic tragedy reject that dichotomy “The industry is trying to present Americans with a false choice between pipelines and rails” he says “We want to choose clean energy” Back in Albany the vigil was deemed a success drawing a crowd of about a hundred But Kahdejah Johnson wasn’t among them Why not Her fear she said got the best of her “Honestly I don’t really hang by my house” she said “I don’t like to be in that area if I don’t have to be there” She is now on a waiting list to be transferred to another developmentsomething
