Romney Spreading Around the Ads

With Little Media Exposure, He Spends Big

By Published on .

As Mitt Romney is neither Rudy Giuliani nor Fred Thompson, and therefore he's not getting much media attention (compared to the other two). So he's getting the word out the old-fashioned way: TV advertising.

According to The Washington Post, Romney "burst from the pack to place more television ads than all of the other 2008 presidential contenders combined, a report issued Monday found."

"The bulk of Romney's TV spots were concentrated in early decider states Iowa (2,036 ads) and New Hampshire (788 ads). But Romney has also run local ads in South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Minnesota."
