So the Obama campaign is spending $25 million on advertising this month?
Well so is the GOP!
From Politico’s Playbook:
GAME ON — [Wednesday] Crossroads GPS launches a staggering $25 million ad blitz today, matching. dollar-for-dollar, the big ad buy launched earlier this month by the Obama campaign. The new 60-second ad, “Obama’s Promise,” lists promises broken by the president. Kicker line: “We need solutions. Not just promises.”
The ad “will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. First wave: $8 million, starting today and total of $25 million for the month.”
Still waiting for the advertising hall monitors (WaPo’s Fact Checker, PolitiFact.com, Factcheck.org, and etc.org) to, er, check in, but the hardworking staff is pretty sure every political ad buries the needle on the Distort-o-Meter.
