Today, both presidential candidates will spend time in New Mexico. With Senator Barack Obama returning to the mainland late last night from his visit with his gravely ill grandmother in Hawaii, his campaign has released a two-minute advertisement in which he speaks directly to voters.
In it, he says: “At this defining moment in our history, the question is not, ‘are you better off than you were four years ago?’ We all know the answer to that. The real question is will our country be better off four years from now? ”
The campaign said the ad would go up on the air in key states, beginning tomorrow. Obama’s advertising spending surged in the first half of this month.
