The second-largest market for political television ads may surprise you, as the city ranks as only the country’s 18th-largest television market.
The city is Cleveland, with $17.7 million spent through June 24 to buy airtime on Cleveland TV stations, reports the Plain Dealer.
That places the city second to Los Angeles, where outside groups have spent $20.2 million on political TV ads, according to the story, which cites a July 6 Wells Fargo analysis of political ad spending. New York is in third place, with $12.69 million in political spending, the story adds.
"It’s no mystery why political advertising is tipping the normal order," the story notes. "Ohio in November could make or break either candidate’s shot at White House residency next Jan. 20, inauguration day."
