DNC To Launch $6 Million TV Campaign Following Convention
The Los Angeles Times reports today that the Democratic Party "is preparing to spend at least $6 million on television commercials starting this weekend, sources said today, offering a critical boost to presidential nominee John F. Kerry as he suspends his own TV advertising next month to hoard cash for the fall." Adds the Times, "One source said the buy appeared to skip Arkansas and Louisiana and reduce air time in Virginia and North Carolina. Delaware, however, apparently was added to the list of more than a dozen other targeted states, including Ohio and Florida."
NJ May Be In Play.
While Democrats plan to spend their cash in the traditional battleground states, a new poll shows that Democratic stronghold New Jersey may complicate their plans. A new Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind New Jersey poll of 834 adults has Kerry leading Bush 42% to 41%, with Nader at 6%.
