Obama Campaign Buys First Ads in Arizona
By Ira Teinowitz

Barack Obama's presidential campaign is taking the unprecedented step of launching its first advertising in rival John McCains home state of Arizona.

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe announced the advertising buy this morning, saying the campaign also would relaunch advertising in Georgia, where it hasnt advertised in several months, and start advertising in North Dakota.

The surprise add is Arizona, but recent polls have indicated the state, while still leaning toward its Republican senator, is getting closer.

We think things have been tightening up there, said Mr. Plouffe. He cited heavy voting by Hispanics and suburban voters that could benefit the Obama campaign.

5. Had to watch their leads in the bigger states
Now that Obama leads in just about all the toss up states and is making headway into traditionally red states and has plenty of money left, he can challenge in even more areas.

4. Super!
I hope I catch one of those Arizona ads! The early voting wait has been long, three hours at times. I can't wait until Tuesday! The longer the line the better chance we have! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: ♥♥♥OBAMA♥♥♥

6. I've seen Obama ads here in AZ in the last few months
They've been very few and far-between, but I have seen them, my husband can vouch for me!

:shrug:

Not that I'm complaining, you understand.

Now I will complain about the McCain robo-calls. Extremely offensive, and I've been getting one a day....
