NEW YORK (AP) - A new report finds that President Barack Obama's re-election campaign has run more than twice as many TV ads in swing states as has the campaign of his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.
The Nielsen Co. said Friday that Obama's campaign had run nearly 230,000 ads in nine battleground states from the beginning of the year through early September, compared with about 87,000 for Romney.
The biggest disparity was in Ohio.
Obama's campaign ran just over 51,000 ads in the state compared to 17,400 for Romney. No Republican has ever won the White House without carrying Ohio and recent polls show Obama ahead there.
Wisconsin is the only state where Romney has edged the president in ads.
Nielsen said Romney's campaign had run 1,952 ads there compared to 1,391 for Obama.
