Another Olympics entrant

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

The campaign of Democrat Hannah-Beth Jackson has purchased nearly $57,000 in television commercials to air during Olympics programming on the NBC affliate station that airs in Santa Barbara County.

Jackson's ads follow on the heels of Republican Tony Strickland's decision to begin campaign advertising extraordinarily early by purchasing $112,000 in ads that have been airing during Olympics programming on the same station. The two are competing for the ultra-competitive 19th Senate District seat in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.

I have not yet seen or been informed of the content of Jackson's ads, but they will air during "Today Show" broadcasts from Beijing, day- and night-time Olympics programming and during the Aug. 24 Closing Ceremony.

Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
