Clinton keeps up rapid pace of Florida TV ads



Hillary Clinton’s campaign is making massive ad reservations in Florida and other swing states.

Clinton will spend about $3 million for the rest of this month and $77 million in September and October, aides say.

The money will pour into Florida, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, North Carolina and Omaha, Neb. The campaign feels confident about Colorado and Virginia and is not spending there, a departure from recent presidential elections.

Clinton and her allies have already spent more than $23 million in Florida. Donald Trump last week released his first TV ad, though he's gotten air cover from a super PAC chaired by Gov. Rick Scott.
