A new report by the Wisconsin Advertising Project states Democrat Barack Obama is hitting Republican John McCain on his home turf. Obama has outspent McCain 3-to-1 during the week of Oct 21-28. That's not including the Democrat's infomercial this week. Nearly 75% of that is being used in traditionally Republican states, according to Jacob Neiheisel Deputy Director of the Advertising Project. He says it's got the Arizona Republican trying to keep up in the red states by focusing most of his spending there.
Neiheisel says Obama has trumped McCain in Wisconsin, spending a million dollars compared to the GOP nominee's $200,000 in the state.
In fact, several markets in Wisconsin were among the top areas in the US where the Illinois Democrat spent the most.
