Richard Rushfield did some INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING and found out that YOU have probably given more money to Barack Obama than some famous rich folks who have been campaigning for him.

Also, Obama outraised Mitt, so.

@deepomega Also also, the fact that Mitt is buying ad time in Pennsylvania and Minnesota is probably a sign not that those states are “in play” but that the campaigns literally have more money than they can spend in any useful way.

@jfruh Yeah. And that they’re trying to drum up the down-ballot races by making the presidential race seem viable.

@jfruh I’ve started seeing Romney ads in Massachusetts! (Not sure if those are national buys, or targeted at NH, or what.) And I mean paid-for-by-the-campaign ads, not PAC ads (which I’ve also seen).
