Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and her largest super PAC announced they plan to suspend ads in the battleground states of Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, in light of recent poll numbers that show large leads.

Priorities USA’s key strategist Guy Cecil made the announcement Monday on Bloomberg’s “With All Due Respect.” This announcement came a week after the Clinton campaign announced it is also ceasing ads in those states.

“Right now, we are going to look at other opportunities for us to expand the map and potentially reach out to some new voters as well through voter registration and on-the-ground efforts in some of our key states,” Cecil told Bloomberg.

The Clinton campaign is already getting a head start with other opportunities. Officials announced increased ad buys in the states of Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

Clinton currently enjoys an average lead of eight points in Virginia, 11 points in Colorado, and nine points in Pennsylvania.

The Clinton campaign and Priorities USA made news earlier this month when financial documents showed the campaign spent $97 million on ads across the country. The majority of the ads were focused on the key swing states of Florida, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
