The Boob Tube

TV sales people are salivating all over the state this weekend. The politicians are starting to open their wallets. Jeff Lamberti has started airing commercials (It's that MTV, quick zooms and pans-style. I saw one just like it in Tampa a few weeks ago for another Republican candidate.) We'll see if the ads do anything to cut into the lead the dems say their polls show Leonard Boswell has right now.

You'll remember, last week I reported the Democratic Congresssional Campaign Committee pulled its big September tv ad buy for Boswell for Des Moines. Dems say they were feeling good about the Boz's re-elex chances, so they'll send their money elsewhere for now. BTW, Boswell starts next week with his first tv spots (It's a positive image ad).

Chet Culver and Jim Nussle are also on right now. Their ads aren't quite so positive. And we've just begun September. Makes you wonder what their ads will look like in October.
