Obama Tries To Lock It Down

Barack Obama is running as many as seven ads for every one of John McCain's, in certain key states. Overall, he s spending $4.00 to every $1.00 spent by Mccain.

Obama reported spending $82 million on advertising during the first two weeks of October -- more than half of what Sen. John F. Kerry spent on television commercials for the entire 2004 presidential campaign, according to WaPo.

Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission late Thursday show that Obama and the Democratic Party committees that are supporting his effort spent nearly $105 million from Oct. 1 to Oct. 15. McCain and Republican Party entities, by contrast, spent approximately $25 million.
