ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST?
The once front-running campaign of former Florida governor Jeb Bush is cancelling more than $3 million in television advertising in early-voting Iowa and South Carolina.
“It’s instead increasing direct voter contact with a total of 60 additional staffers,” reported The Des Moines Register.
Really? So to recap: Bush is now freeing up television money for staff … after a previous staff downsizing aimed at freeing up more money for television.
“The Bush camp also said it plans to increase its advertising on conservative talk radio stations in South Carolina, a cheaper, lower-profile and less effective way to reach GOP base voters,” a follow-up report by The Washington Post added.
