McCain Quietly Spending on TV in Swing States
By Matthew Mosk in The Trail:
Republican John McCain has quietly spent about $1.5 million on television ads in key swing states over the past 90 days, trying to get an early edge with voters while his Democratic rival remains bogged down by a protracted primary battle.
The McCain advertising -- in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa and Michigan -- may also be an attempt to start countering what has been a huge television presence by Democrats over the past six months.
McCain has spent about $11 million on television ads so far during the campaign. By contrast, Democrat Barack Obama has spent $75 million during his presidential run, more than the entire Republican field combined, according to a new study by the Wisconsin Advertising Project.
