Another lopsided advertising week in the Clinton-Trump Florida battle



Hillary Clinton and allies continue to vastly outspend Donald Trump in Florida, nearly twice as much this week alone.

Pro-Clinton ads: $4.2 million
Pro-Trump ads: $2.8 million

The numbers come from NBC News. Total spending now tops $50 million, mostly on Clinton’s side. And yet, Florida remains close. Clinton leads by 2.9 percentage points, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls.
