(Harrisburg) -- A new analysis shows spending on air time for campaign ads on broadcast TV in Pennsylvania's Supreme Court race totaled more than $11.5 million. 

The Washington, D.C.-based Center for Public Integrity center analyzed political advertising data from media tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG and released the results today.

The analysis shows spending by the Democrats who won all three open seats on the state's highest court accounted for about half of the total.

They paid for more than 16,000 airings of their commercials through Monday. 

It revealed that two outside groups spent more than $3.5 million on their ads.

Those groups are the Democratic-leaning Pennsylvanians for Judicial Reform and the Washington-based Republican State Leadership Committee.
