Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign is gearing up for a multi-million dollar TV ad blitz just days before the general election. The Hollywood Reporter says the Obama campaign has brokered a deal with CBS, NBC, and is negotiating with the other networks as well.
The CBS deal is for a half-hour of primetime reportedly at a cost $961,000. NBC is selling the Obama campaign a half-hour for close to a million dollars as well.
No word yet on the content of this 30 minute mega-Obama ad. Also, there are rumblings that the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain is at work on a final series of TV ads.
