  •  I thought all October ad time was already bought (8+ / 0-)

    forgot where I read that. Ad time is finite, so it doesn't matter how much money they have.

    •  Ad Time (4+ / 0-)

      It's bought, but not really bought, since ad space sold that far in advance is just an option to buy.   If you decided not to execute the option the space you lose the option cost (usually minimal) and the space can be resold by either you or the television station (and depending on the contract if it's not resold at the same price they make you use it anyway).

      The company can also resell the ad space and take it away from you, but I think it can only be sold at least twice the price you optioned it for, to pay the TV company and to pay the original optioner.

      So pulling the ads out of a market isn't out the realm of possibilities at this point.  My guess is that the ad space they bought would be resold very quickly or they could transfer the space to another GOP candidate.

          states the republicans have abandoned this cycle?
          No pressure on you, glorificus, but if anyone has one, please share.

          I'm also happy they pulled out of NM-SEN----it's probably another casualty in their war on brown people.
          The republicans better address their xenophobia.

            Mexico to North Dakota. GO HEIDI!!!

            I know other people have written about this very recently, but I didn't pay that much attention.

            There may be 5 total this week.

              by saying something cocky. But if the stars are aligned, and we stay on message, there's some chance the dems are gonna THUMP their sorry tails in November.

              Anything could happen--Gawker could get another document dump of Mitt Romney's financial files. Or Harry Reid could be holding some damning tax returns up his sleeve from whoever his source is.

              Personally, I hope someone leaks footage of Mitt teaching Rafalca to dance.
              Just sayin'...

          That was one of two thoughts I had after reading this.  Concentrate on keeping the House, gaining the Senate, and infiltrate even more state offices.

          The second thought was maybe they're not at all worried about the election outcome.... between voter disenfranchisment and electronic voting machines overseen by repuglican election officials maybe they think they already know the outcome??  (Can you tell I don't trust these people?!)
