Ads Signal Alabama Primary Getting Close
(2008-01-24)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - A sure sign Alabama's presidential primary is getting close is the start of television advertising.

Barack Obama's Democratic presidential campaign will begin ads today in markets throughout Alabama, campaign spokeswoman Amy Brundage said today.

The ad, which has been used in other states, promotes Obama's advocacy of universal health care and an end to the war in Iraq.

Obama is the first presidential candidate to announce the start of TV ads in the state, but Republican Ron Paul has already been using radio ads to promote his candidacy.

Alabama's primary is on February 5th, but residents of Mobile and Baldwin counties can vote a week earlier because the primary conflicts with Mardi Gras celebrations in the coastal counties.
