Obama Outspent McCain on TV By 3-1 In Closing Week

The University of Wisconsin advertising project finds that “From October 21st to October 28th, spending on television advertising in the presidential campaign has totaled nearly $38 million.  Over this time period, the Obama campaign spent nearly $21.5 million while the McCain campaign spent nearly $7.5 million.  Another $6.7 million was spent by the Republican Party and $2.2 million was spent by interest groups.”

So, if you throw in all spending, it’s a 3-2 Obama advantage.

Here’s a table showing a state-by-state breakdown. Once again, for some reason, McCain is outspending Obama in Iowa (Obama has an 11-point lead in the state in the RCP average):
