Barack Obama Up With His First General Election TV Ad

BarackObama’s first general election televison ad: “Country I Love”

In Team Obama’s first television ad, Barack Obama is portrayed as “one of us” – a regular guy with family from Kansas. Note the references to family values, and welfare reform.

This is why both Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich have warned the GOP and John McCain to not demonize Obama but to draw him out on his liberal and wrong position on the issues.

This ad will air in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Virginia, per the campaign – all key battleground states. Marc Ambinder estimates the cost to be close to $3 million per week in these 18 states.

Team McCain has its work cut out for itself.
