Ad blitz targets Wisconsin voters

(CNN) - Ads, phone calls and mailers have bombarded voters in Wisconsin in the days leading up to Tuesday's vote - the next major battleground in the Republican presidential race.

The Badger State primary has gained significance over the last week as both Mitt Romney's and Rick Santorum's campaigns have indicated it could dramatically alter the momentum and duration of the race.

    The flip flopper is doing this in every state. They were driving us crazy in MD and they give you a number but you can't get in touch wig a person so after leaving two messages and the calls continuing I reported them to the FCC. Jo kore calls and I will do the same form the general election if need be.
    He is also doing TV commercials against sanatorium but it's from some group it never mentions the $250M+ man.

  5. The-Least-Unelectable

    I thought Rmoney won the nomination after he got the full back of the Bush family.

    Why is he still wasting millions in campaign ads?

    Ooops. Forgot big oil donors are behind him and Cayman Islands is yet untapped.

    To Saint Santorum's point, $4 million is alot of money to spending on a race if the race is already won. This all the more reason why we need to keep money out of politics and have campaign finance reform.

  7. Another Day in the Idiot Mines

    Hey CNN, why are you relying on "unnamed sources" for information about ad spending? Why aren't you doing this research yourself? Rmoney's blatant attempt to be the first post-Citizens United candidate to try to by an election is very newsworthy. Why are you censoring this huge story?

    Why is it that because Mitt Romney has a better campaign; because of the better campaign, he is able to raise more money and have more people that will support and endorse him, that the campaigns that are not so good, and can’t raise the money or get the endorsements, claim that Romney is buying the campaign. Quit complaining, develop a better message, get more people that believe in you, raise more money and compete.
    When I hear the other campaigns complaining that they don’t have the money or resources necessary to run a good campaign, it reminds me of people complaining that it is not fair they can’t run a marathon, and yet they refuse to do much more than sit on the sidelines, and complain that those that prepared for the marathon actually finished it.

    Romney IS going to BUY the GOP Nomination. Unfortunately, it won't help him a bit come Nov.

  10. Obama Doubling down on Socialism

    They ought to change from the elephant to the hippo... - Yep. Facts speak for themselves. Mittens is trying to buy the election.
    No more than the record amount of money Obama spent in 2008 to buy the Whitehouse.

    Obama Doubling- least you forget that most of the money Obama got was from real American voters. Regular hard working people who would put in $3 on average. Robmey is good at Koch, Rove and company withh MILLIONS at a time.
