    Ted Cruz held an unscheduled press conference today, the main purpose of which seems to have been to highlight the fact that the Trump campaign has threatened to sue him over ads his campaign is running in South Carolina, highlighting his pro-choice record. Cruz opened the press conference by reading portions of the letter, and declaring that if Trump filed the lawsuit, he would respond with a motion for sanctions. Take a look:
  • Alex Wagner OK With Racial Fear Tactics—If That's What It Takes for Dems to Win

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Could this be the most cynical statement of the campaign season? The woman whose recent wedding President Obama attended is okay with stoking the racial fears of black Americans—if that's what it takes to drive them to the polls and secure Dem victories. Alex Wagner devoted a segment of her MSNBC show today to the naked appeals to the racial fears of black Americans that Democrats are making in campaign ads. Wagner discussed Dem ads that seek to stoke black fear toward Republicans by invoking Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. You might think Wagner would have condemned these ugly tactics,...

    Washington Post ^ | October 12, 2012 | Dan Eggen and T.W. Farnam,
    Republican nominee Mitt Romney and his allies are banking heavily on a high-risk, high-reward media strategy in the final weeks of the campaign, hoping that burying President Obama in ads will give them a crucial edge on Election Day. Ad purchases in the presidential race doubled or in some cases tripled last week in swing states such as Colorado, Florida, Iowa and Virginia, tracking data show. The surge is being driven by Romney and well-funded allies, who decided against running more ads earlier in the campaign in favor of a big bang at the end. Restore Our Future, a super...

    In the weekend following President Barack Obama’s terrible debate performance, the Obama campaign released 18 videos on their YouTube channel, 10 of which are attack ads against Mitt Romney, in an effort to rally their campaign back to success. . Check out the most desperate one where the Obama campaign says that Romney misled the American people about Obama’s green energy record. Really, you’re going to defend Solyndra?:
  • Was ‘Understands’ Coordinated? - anti-Romney ad might violate campaign-finance laws

    National Review Online ^ | August 16, 2012 | Stephen M. Hoersting
    The “Understands” ad, by Obama super PAC Priorities USA, insinuates that Mitt Romney is responsible for the death of the wife of former GST Steel employee Joe Soptic, five years before she died, simply because Soptic lost his job (and thus his health insurance) at a plant owned by Bain Capital. Conventional wisdom has it that the ad is both despicable and false. The question to be answered is: Was it coordinated with either the Obama campaign or the Democratic National Committee? Federal law typically treats a super-PAC ad coordinated with an official campaign or political party committee as an...

    *** The punches land as the narrator lists the groups of people West has supposedly wronged. *** West said the ad reflects a "sad state of politics" in the country. "The ad being run against me by my opponent's family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible," West said. "It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for...

    ..In the political mud pit of South Carolina, whose Jan. 21 primary is next on the calendar, candidates and their Super PACs have already dropped more than $9 million so far this cycle. The top three spenders in South Carolina have all been super PACs, led by RestoreOurFuture, a Mitt Romney-allied group, at $2.1 million. Texas Governor Rick Perry’s super PAC, MakeUsGreatAgain, has pumped $1.77 million into the Palmetto State so far, and WinningourFuture PAC, which backs Newt Gingrich, trails close behind at $1.6 million. Those sums are poised to swell quickly, with both Perry and Gingrich planning to savage...

    With less than five weeks until Iowa voters hit the polls to kick off the Republican presidential race, the leading candidates in the race unleashed barrages of ads hitting television stations across the country and the Internet. Former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts unveiled two new ads running in Iowa, which holds the first presidential caucus Jan. 3, and in New Hampshire. The Iowa ad indicates Romney plans to compete in the Hawkeye State, where he placed second back in the 2008 race. "After watching Mitt evade, distort, and eventually blame Bret's questions, it's no wonder he is ‘Scared Mittless’...

    In an aggressive move to pull his campaign out of the trough after his Wednesday night debate performance, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has effectively bought himself a chunk of the Fox News Channel, buying nearly $1 million of advertising time on the network. A rival campaign that is monitoring advertising sales said Mr. Perry’s campaign had purchased $975,000 worth of advertising time on the channel, a huge amount for national cable television, ensuring that his ads will be seen up to seven times a day.
  • When the media reports "unexpectedly", what is that worth as a campaign ad? (job data, etc)

    06/21/2011 10:44:28 AM PDT · by Halfmanhalfamazing · 1 replies
    Many of us have noticed how progressive journalists use the word 'unexpectedly'. They do it month after month. Al Reuters has an article from last week that uses this word. Yet again, after all this time. What these are, are campaign advertisements. From the media, to Obama.(most of us know this instinctively) It's a fair question to ask. And if enough of us ask it, maybe we could find out just how much the media donates to it's preferred candidates.

    The Financial Times ^ | 9/28/2010 | Stephanie Kirchgaessner
    When Barack Obama was elected president on the back of an army of small donors in 2008, the commonly held wisdom in Washington was that a new model had emerged in how elections would be funded in the future. Mr Obama’s supporters, giving donations of $25 each over the internet, coupled with substantial support from traditional big Democratic givers, gave him a distinct advantage over rival John McCain. Republicans, unmotivated and lacking the Obama campaign’s organisation, lost the money war. But 34 days before the congressional elections, the table has turned on Democrats. An influx of cash from a relatively...

    Depending on which poll you believe Republican Scott Brown is ahead by anywhere for 3-15 percentage points heading into the last two days of campaigning before election day. However no matter which poll one looks at, Scott Brown is moving up and Martha Coakley is moving down. During the past week Coakley had to pull two TV ads, one because she spelled the name of her own state Massachusetts incorrectly, in the other she insensitively used a picture of the twin towers as a background in an attack ad. But today was a "twofer." Two of the Democratic Candidate's Campaign...

    WASHINGTON -- Nervous Democrats went sharply negative yesterday in the unexpectedly tight race to hold on to Ted Kennedy's old Senate seat in Massachusetts. Democrats and their money are flooding into the state, along with new ads reliving old elections and invoking radio king Rush Limbaugh as Hitler, in an attack on the Republican candidate. The state's attorney general, Martha Coakley, released the first negative ad of the campaign comparing state Sen. Scott Brown to former President George W. Bush and ex-veep Dick Cheney. "Who is Scott Brown really?" the ad's announcer asks. "A Republican. In lockstep with Washington Republicans,"...

    John McCain's come-from-behind bid for the presidency is being damaged by the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, better known as the McCain-Feingold bill. The workings of McCain-Feingold and the Democratic Party's huge fund-raising advantage have left Mr. McCain debilitatingly dependent on the $85 million in taxpayer financing he received last month. The Politico newspaper reported yesterday that Mr. Obama is outspending the combined McCain campaign/Republican National Committee campaign effort by as much as 8-1, and that probably understates Mr. McCain's disadvantage. In the first three weeks of September, Mr. Obama ran 1,342 television commercials in the Washington media market,...
