Skip to comments.Romney and Obama ads in Boston? [Vanity]
Posted on 10/28/2012 8:25:23 PM PDT by sitetest
So, I was sitting in a restaurant at Logan in Boston eating an over-priced, over-cooked burger with my wife and son, a little sad to be leaving to go back home after a pleasant weekend visit with my other son at college.
I'm absent-mindedly looking at the boob tube when I see images of Mitt Romney. Initially I figure, oh, it's probably news covering the campaign. Then I realize, no, they're saying nice things about the governor, so it can't be news coverage. Then I see, "This ad approved by Mitt Romney," or something like that.
I remark to my wife and son, I just saw a Romney ad! And we're in BOSTON!
I look up again to see the snarl of the Kenyan anti-Christ, and automatically, I can see that this is one of his ads!
We all look up in puzzlement - what's going on here?
WHY ARE THE CANDIDATES ADVERTISING IN MASSACHUSETTS?
Any ideas, folks?
Privately, the candidates are both thinking that Massachusetts is competitive....
NH media market from Boston
I would guess they would be targeted to New Hampshire voters.
There are NH stations which, I imagine, are less-expensive than Boston stations, no?
Just a surmise on your part, or are you basing that on something else?
Why would they not think they should try in Massachusetts, Romney was governor there. The only time a candidate has not won his home state was Gore. I would at least try.
To help Scott Brown.
That’s how I’d read it. If Mass. is comfortably in Obama’s pocket, why should Mitt try.
Boston TV serves southern NH.
Also, the Romney signs definitely outnumber the Obama signs around here (I know, lawn signs don't vote).
commuters watching teevee???
I find it humorous that leftist station owners are willing to take dollars from a conservative candidate.
LOL! I didn’t mean while they were driving! While they’re in Boston. :)
Southern NH, specifically Nashua, but really anything south of Manchester, which has it’s own media market, specifically WMUR...
I was in Cambridge for the weekend and although there were definitely some Kenyan bumper stickers, frankly, I saw more Elizabeth Warren bumper stickers. And there weren't tons of either.
But I didn't see anything for either Gov. Romney or Sen. Brown.
I guess folks must be right about NH. Apparently, there's only an ABC station that directly serves NH. The other commercial networks originate out of Boston.
It was just a little jolting.
Kinda like if I saw a Romney or Obama ad on a local Baltimore, MD station. Which I haven't.
I got 5-1 from a guy at the track that Romney takes New Jersey. We did elect Christie.
