More Nontraditional Help for Spitzer

Here’s a new radio ad that criticizes “special interests” for not supporting Eliot Spitzer’s plan to lift the cap on charter schools. The group running the ad is Real Reform Now, a new collaboration between the New York Charter Schools Association and Dems for Education Reform.

So far, there’s a $100,000 ad buy for this radio spot, according to Michael Tobman, head of Dems for Education Reform.
