Television Ad War Goes National
Wall Street Journal:
With five days left before Super Tuesday, presidential campaign ads have gone national -- yet some candidates are on the airwaves in more of the country than others.
In a last big push before 24 states hold primary elections and caucuses, yesterday Republican hopeful Mitt Romney announced his first round of campaign advertisements since his loss to Arizona Sen. John McCain in Florida. Mr. McCain responded with a round of national cable-TV ads, which will begin airing today, along with a local ad buy in Missouri. The McCain campaign also will introduce at least one new TV spot before Feb. 5, a campaign official said.
