Bob Dold is out with an new campaign commercial. I think it's pretty good - the name Dold is repeated over and over (voters aren't going to forget it, after this). I especially like the old guy who says if he was from Chicago, he'd vote twice (is that all?). Notice the Chicago Tribune endorsement tag at the end - it's subtle and I missed it the first time around. I'm sure, though, that he'll be trumpeting that more, soon.
They like to play the "rate it" game over at Capitol Fax Blog (which is fine if you want to comment, and I'd be foolish to try to stop you...) but I'm more interested in people's thoughts on the strategic use of cable and network TV ads in this race, for either the Dems or the GOP. So far, I have not heard of anyone in the IL-10 race doing network ad buys for the primary - it's all been cable. Is cable effective? Should candidates try to blow their wad on real TV? Does anyone ever watch real TV anymore? Doesn't Bob have great teeth?
