Florida finally in top 10 for TV saturation in presidential race

26

June

NBC News' ad trackers note that for the first time TV ad spending by the Barack Obama and Mitt Romney campaigns and the assorted SuperPACS put Florida - both the Tampa Bay and Fort Myers market - among the top 10 most saturated TV markets in the presidential race. In terms of dollars spent Florida has been at the top already, but not in terms of sheer numbers of ads.

Here's the breakdown courtesy of First Read:
