The presidential campaign of GOP nominee Donald Trump is making its largest ad buy of the election, with The New York Post reporting that the campaign will spend more than $10 million on television ads in the next week or so.
“The TV spots will begin airing [today] and will be viewed in nine swing states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia,” the report notes.
Trump has some catching up to do to reach the level of spending of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
“Since clinching her party’s nomination in early June, Clinton has spent more than $77 million on television and radio advertising, largely targeting voters in battleground states, according to Kantar Media’s political ad tracker,” The Post reports. “Trump has spent only about $5 million on TV ads, which began airing only this month.”
