Political ads meant for western Iowa hit Omaha

News

June 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Media and political analysts say Omaha residents will find their televisions inundated with political ads aimed at the presidential election in the weeks before the November 6th general election.  But the ads aren’t necessarily aimed at the very red state of Nebraska.  The target lies across the Missouri River, as both campaigns battle for undecided Iowa. And to get air time in western Iowa, you’ve got to go through Omaha. Presidential campaign ads have already shown up in Omaha earlier than usual. Omaha television station KETV says President Barack Obama’s campaign has been running ads, but not Romney’s. But Romney is getting a boost in Omaha from some conservative super PACs, which have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to run ads slamming Obama for several weeks.
