Scare Tactics

Obama is airing a new ad highlighting his family values and his background. It's a good ad to go along with an inspiring story.

This ad is running in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Virginia. Many of these states are Red states that the GOP takes for granite.

The strategy: Obama is running excellent campaigns in each of these states. His success will scare the McCain camp into spending money (that they don't have) in traditionally safe GOP states leaving little to go towards the battleground states. Nice.
