Obama Outspending McCain on Va Ads

Tim Craig

The Atlantic's Marc Ambinder reports that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) outspent his GOP opponent, Sen. Arizona John McCain (Ariz.), in television advertising in Virginia by nearly three to one last week.

Ambinder, citing figures compiled by TNS Media Intelligence Campaign Media Analysis Group (TNSMI/CMAG) and the University of Wisconsin Advertising Project, said Obama aired $868,000 in ads in Virginia, compared to McCain's $312,000.

Obama spent more on ads in Virginia then he did in Ohio.
