Talent begins advertising in Springfield market
I haven't seen anything on Joplin television (though it may have been there), but Associated Press reports Jim Talent has begun advertising on Springfield TV stations. The AP article suggests two reasons for the early ad blitz:
1. Talent has enough money to spend some now and still have plenty for closer to the general election.
2. The senator has taken a hit this week with his vote against broadened stem cell research and the subsequent veto by President Bush. Polls indicate two-thirds of Missourians support stem cell research.
