Romney outspending on ads

According to The Nielsen Company,  Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney placed more local TV advertisements than all other candidates combined, with 4,549 ads, mostly on local broadcast television, through June 10.

Nielsen Monitor Plus, the leading provider of competitive advertising information, reported that traditional media started early this presidential campaign and that the local TV ad trend is anticipated to increase.

Since the two weeks beginning June 11, both Chris Dodd and John Edwards have run half of their reported TV advertisements to date and Barack Obama began running TV ads in Iowa on June 27.

Obama dominates online “Buzz” and generates the most website hits of any candidate.
