Campaign Ads in Michigan
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Presidential candidates John McCain and
Barack Obama have appealed to Michigan voters with nearly $6
million in campaign ads so far.
The nonpartisan Michigan Campaign Finance Network said Wednesday
that a check of advertising data at television stations shows
Republican McCain spent $3.2 million airing ads between May 28 and
July 20.
Democrat Obama spent $2.7 million for ads running between June
20 and July 28.
Total spending is far less than in 2004, when advertising by
President Bush and Democrat John Kerry started in March.
The Republican National Committee has run nearly $1 million in
ads for McCain, but other third-party advertising has been light.
