For the past few weeks Hillary Clinton has been campaigning in several states not just Pennsylvania. During that time Barack Obama has been touring Pennsylvania by bus as well as boring the citizens of Pennsylvania with many advertisements – the same torment citizens of Ohio and Texas were subjected to without much success for Obama.
As we pointed out yesterday, the reliable SurveyUSA still has Hillary well ahead in Pennsylvania (of course the new SurveyUSA Pennsylvania poll has not been discussed in Big Media television outlets – they prefer to keep misinforming Americans that the race in Pennsylvania is “tight”. Fine by us – Hillary’s Pennsylvania victory will be that much sweeter when Big Media and Big Blogs have to once again eat crow and explain their misinformation to those few Americans who still pay attention to Big Media/Big Blogs).
The new Hillary ad campaign in Pennsylvania, and Obama’s diminishing returns on his cash investments, means that Hillary has probably passed her low point in Pennsylvania (which was not much of a low point) and will now – in Maya Angelou’s words – RISE .
The ads come as Obama has been outspending Clinton in Pennsylvania, with the state’s April 22 primary only two weeks away. As of Sunday, Obama had spent $3.6 million in the state to Clinton’s $1.3 million, according to data compiled by TNS Media Intelligence/Campaign Media Analysis Group. [snip]
“They’re trying to end the race for the White House with an unyielding media blitz,” an e-mail to supporters says. “Don’t let a sea of Obama ads overwhelm our powerful message in Pennsylvania. Contribute now.”
Obama has tried everything to fool Pennsylvania citizens to vote for him. Obama has probably already hit his high water mark in Pennsylvania. Hillary is now airing ads in Pennsylvania addressing the citizens of Pennsylvania.
The Clinton campaign today announced five television ads that will air in different cities throughout the Keystone State beginning today. The five ads – “Get it Done,” “Spectacular,” “Scranton,” “Falling Through” and “Nuestra Amiga” – include testimonials from Governor Ed Rendell and Mayor Michael Nutter, as well as a biographical spot highlighting Hillary’s ties to Pennsylvania.
The ads highlight Hillary’s ability to get the job done as president – her commitment to jumpstarting our economy, standing up for the middle class, and bringing quality, universal health care to all Americans. “Nuestra Amiga,” a Spanish language ad, highlights Hillary’s understanding of the Latino community and the problems it faces.

Hillary will also keynote the Allegheny County Democratic Committee’s Jefferson/Jackson Dinner in the Keystone State:
“We are both honored and excited that Senator Clinton has accepted our offer to speak at this year’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner,” said Jim Burn, Chairman of the Allegheny County Democratic Committee. “With so much National and International attention focused on this year’s Primary, and with Pennsylvania being a major player in a Presidential Primary for the first time in over 30 years, Senator Clinton’s presence at this Dinner will surely make it a huge success.”
The Jefferson Jackson Dinner is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. on April 10 at Heinz Field in the North Shore. Tickets are $125 for one or $1,000 for a table of 10. The party expects more than 1,000 people to attend, Burn said.
