Who's spending what on Fla's presidential ad wars

Chuck Todd on today's Daily Rundown had a helpful run down on the presidential campaign spending by the campaigns and SuperPACS in the battleground states. The role of SuperPACS this cycle can't be overstated.

The Obama campaign is spending $6.9-million on TV, and the pro-Obama SuperPAC Priorities USA spent $1.4-million.

Meanwhile the conservative groups CrossRoads GPS, American Energy Alliance, American Future Fund, Americans for Prosperity and Restore Our Future are spending $7.6-million.

Obama and his allies have an edge in TV spending, but nowhere near the advantage they had against John McCain in Florida four years ago
