With less than three months to go until Election Day, Donald Trump's campaign has announced that it will finally start running television ads. However, the ad buys so far are modest and limited to a few swing states, reports Politico:
Early reports included two network affiliates in Orlando, Florida. Trump is set to spend about $150,000 on WFTV-TV, the ABC affiliate there, and $120,000 on WKMG-TV, the CBS affiliate. The first buys included $65,000 on WHIO-TV, the CBS affiliate in Dayton, Ohio; WNWO-TV, the NBC affiliate in Toledo, Ohio; and WPXI-TV, the NBC affiliate in Pittsburgh. Trump's campaign told POLITICO earlier this week the GOP presidential nominee would begin advertising in five states: the four where it began placing Thursday morning, but also Virginia.
Clinton has already been on the air in these five states for two months. And by way of comparison, Clinton has spent $23 million on ads in Florida, $17 million in Ohio, and $6 million in Pennsylvania.
