In her first wave of general-election broadcast television ads, Hillary Clinton is focusing much of her spending on Orlando, Denver, and Raleigh, Bloomberg reports. The publication analyzed data from Kantar Media/CMAG data, concluding that Clinton is spending about $500,000 a day on TV ads, vs. zero spent by Donald Trump.
“The review also shows how the top super-PAC backing her, Priorities USA, is allowing her to conserve resources by covering certain markets almost entirely for her,” Bloomberg notes. “In Nevada, for example, Clinton has run just three spots during the past two weeks in Las Vegas, as compared to the 502 spots the campaign has aired in the cheaper market of Reno. The heavy lifting in Las Vegas has been left to Priorities USA, which has run 380 spots.”
The report adds: “The Clinton campaign advertising shows no signs of tapering off. Among some of her bigger advertising reservations set to air during the first two weeks of July are $2.7 million on national cable and satellite television targeting specific markets and states, $1.1 million in the Tampa-St. Petersburg market and $853,000 in Charlotte, North Carolina.”
