The money game

by thoughtfulconservative

Snippets of an article on Yahoo! News.

McCain spent $37 million in September, leaving him $47 million for October. His monthly financial report filed with the Federal Election Commission shows he spent nearly two-thirds of his money, $22.5 million, on advertising as he tried to keep up with Obama’s ad blitz in battleground states.

But Obama, who reported raising $150 million in September, retains the upper hand.

Obama also is buying a half hour of air time on Oct. 29 on NBC, CBS and Fox — an expensive commitment of time — to address the nation in prime time five days before Election Day, Nov. 4.

McCain is no longer buying time on national networks or national cable.

Although money isn’t everything, comparing the amounts gives a clear advantage to Obama.
