(CNN) - A super PAC supportive of presidential candidate Jon Huntsman has spent nearly $1.5 million on television ads including a new ad buy over Thanksgiving.
A spokesman for Our Destiny super PAC tells CNN the group is spending $650,000 on broadcast and cable advertisements over a trio of media markets covering New Hampshire, the state where Huntsman has placed his presidential hopes.
Two ads - one 60 seconds long and another 30 second ad - will air on cable stations in Boston from Nov. 24 – 27. The political action committee will air the longer spot in Portland, Maine and Burlington, Vermont over the same time frame.
The latest available fundraising report showed Huntsman's campaign was in the red and struggling to garner sufficient funds to hit the airwaves.
The Super PAC is not subject to the same federal rules on financing. Many have speculated Huntsman's father, a wealthy chemicals scion, has contributed the lion's share of funding to the group to shore up his son's presidential effort.
Huntsman has not answered questions about whether the bulk of the funding for the group has come from his father, a wealthy Utah chemicals scion.
Our Destiny went up on the air for Huntsman earlier this month with a spot that showed Americans worried about the struggling economy.
The group's ads will air on AEN, the Discovery Channel, ESP2, ESPN, the Food Network, FXNC, HGTV, the History Channel, New England Sports Network, Time Warner Cable, and USA.
