RNC Plans a Six-Figure Ad Buy in Indiana

Indiana certainly stands among all the states of the Union as one of its staunchest Republican states. It never once has voted for a Democrat since 1964 when the nation repudiated wholesale Barry Goldwater's conservative agenda. Now comes Ben Smith with a report that the Republican National Committee has spent $100,000 on television advertisements in Indiana in an attempt to keep the state's 11 electoral votes red. Comments Smith:
With its own polling presumably confirming public polls showing Obama seriously competitive in Indiana . . . the Republicans are being stretched thinner than they would like. Meanwhile, elements of Obama's attempt to expand the map appear to be succeeding, at least by a preliminary measure: He's making the GOP spend money.
