Political Forecast: Iowa Legislative Dems with TV advantage
Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
Thanks to Governor Tom Vilsack's forethought, Democratic candidates for the state house and senate will have quite the TV advantage up until election day. From Civic Skinny: "Democrats seem to have pulled a coup in final-week TV advertising. They say Des Moines and Cedar Rapids TV markets are sold out — except after midnight — and they say they got in with some final buys. As a result, they say, Democratic advertising for state legislative seats on TV in those two key markets will outpace Republican buys two-to-one. One reason: Gov. Vilsack several months ago hit up rich Democrats for money for a media fund that allowed the Democrats to buy early…." This would explain why McKinley Bailey, Susan Radke, Merle Johnson, Eric Palmer, Mark Davitt, Tim Hoy, and others are on the air so much. Good work, Gov. Vilsack.
