If you think you saw a lot of presidential campaign ads on TV, you are right.
The campaigns and their allies will spend $1.7 million on North Carolina television stations this week, according to an analysis by NBC/ SMG Delta. The only states where the campaigns will spend more on TV were Ohio, Florida, and Virginia.
The re-election campaign of President Barack Obama will spend $1.1 million in North Carolina, while the pro Romney forces will spend $642,000. That breaks down to $193,000 being spent by the campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney and $449,000 being spent by Crossroads GPS, the super pac associated with Karl Rove, the former advisor to President George W. Bush.
Overall, nationally, the pro Obama groups will spent $8.8 million while the pro Romney groups will spend $4.7 million.
