Trump to Launch First TV Ads in PA
According to Beth Reinhard of the Wall Street Journal, the Trump campaign has bought ads in Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. These spots are set to start on Friday and increase after September 1st.
A few weeks ago, the New York Times reported that the GOP nominee would make those four states his top priority.
So far, the Trump campaign hasn’t aired any TV ads during the general election and has received little help from outside groups. In contrast, the Clinton campaign has spent millions in multiple states and on cable nationwide.
Democrats first began pouring money into the Keystone in June when Priorities USA bought $10.5 million worth of commercials. Shortly afterward, the Clinton campaign announced they would be airing ads in July.
This week, however, Priorities USA revealed that they’re pausing spending in PA since the numbers have turned in the former Secretary of State’s favor. The Clinton campaign has not indicated whether they intend to also pull their resources out of the commonwealth.
