Obama's First General Election Ad

The Obama campaign wasted little time in showing how they are going to use all the money they expect to rake in now that they have opted out of the public financing system, by announcing the release of Obama’s first general-election spot.

The 60-second advertisement, "Country I Love," 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 starting tomorrow, according to a statement by the campaign. That’s 18 states.

The campaign goes on to say that, in the ad, "Senator Obama speaks to voters about the core values this nation was founded on and how they have guided him to work hard for his education, to bypass jobs on Wall Street to work as a community organizer, and to lead the fight for America’s families and veterans as an Illinois and United States Senator. The ad presents Senator Obama’s record of passing laws to reform welfare, to cut taxes for working families, and to ensure America’s veterans have the health care they deserve."
