Clinton won the Des Moines Register's endorsement, but Obama is touting the positive media coverage he's received.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton won the Des Moines Register's coveted endorsement over the weekend, but rival Barack Obama is making sure Iowa voters know a slew of media outlets have also praised his candidacy.
In a new 30-second TV spot that seems designed to counter Clinton's big endorsement, an announcer reads several glowing descriptions of the Illinois senator delivered by journalists the last year - including two quotes from the Register itself.
Meanwhile, the New York senator’s campaign also launched a new ad Monday that touts the Des Moines Register's endorsement. The ad's announcer reads quotes from the Sunday editorial backing the senator, and ends with the words: "Hillary Rodham Clinton can do great things for our country."
