The flood waters have hit Pennsylvania.
And no, we're not talking rain from Hurricane Sandy, which has done quite enough damage here thank you very much.
This time the flood is television commercials for Mitt Romney – with a counter-flood from the Obama campaign.
Of a sudden, Governor Mitt Romney has made a $120,000 TV ad buy here in Pennsylvania. The ads to run the day before and the day of the election.
Where President Obama is supposedly sooooooooooooo very confident.
Suddenly Team Obama has countered – plunking $650,000 on the TV table for Pennsylvania!
Say what? This sure-thing Obama state abruptly needs a transfusion of $650,000 cold hard American cash to run Obama TV commercials in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh -- in Democrat strongholds in a state that is a sure-thing for Obama? Is that really necessary?
Well, it is when you realize the Romney-supporting Crossroads SuperPAC is dumping in… wait for it… a cool $600,000 in TV bucks to practically saturate Pennsylvania's GOP base in Central Pennsylvania's media market in Harrisburg, Lebanon, Lancaster, and York. The Crossroads commercials will begin today -- Wednesday -- and run through Friday.
And last night another Romney group, Restore Our Future, popped this commercial titled "New Normal" -- on Central Pennsylvania television sets.
In other words, all of a sudden Pennsylvania is being flooded. And this time not with rain from Hurricane Sandy.
