Attack Ads

February 24th, 2010 by flanews

Florida Governor’s race is heating up as both parties release attack ads. The ads target TV audiences, but as Whitney Ray tells us, they’ll also get a lot of play on the web where a majority of young voters get their news.

Florida is still nine months away from choosing its next governor and the political punches are already beginning to fly.

Tuesday the Republican Governor’s Association released this ad claiming Alex Sink cut thousands of jobs as head of Bank of America’s Florida Branch. Sink says no way.

“They’re clearly desperate and misleading,” said Sink.

Wednesday the Florida Democrats fired back, releasing this anti McCollum ad airing around the state. McCollum says he’s proud of his time in Washington.

“I’m proud of my service of Congress and my record there,” said McCollum.

By airing the ads on television and posting them online campaigns are able to target two audiences, TV viewers and younger voters who spend more time on the web.

The ads are coming earlier than usual, a trend political scientist expect will continue. The TV and internet ad battle will really kick off once Sink and McCollum begin spending their own campaign cash. Both of the ads we just showed you are being financed by political groups.
