Millions of dollars in TV ads continue to air against Trump in Florida, but race remains tight



The landslide continues, with another super PAC ad in Florida directed at Donald Trump.

The new ad, featuring a man who spent 11 months in a POW camp, represents $9 million in spending from Priorities USA, a source tells the Buzz. Millions more have come from HillaryClinton’s campaign.

Trump and allies have spent almost nothing, in part because he's still trying to ramp up fundraising and in part because he's breaking the traditions of campaigning.

But Florida remains a dead heat, according to the Real Clear Politics average (though there hasn’t been fresh polling in a couple weeks).

Today Tim Kaine brings the Democratic campaign to Daytona Beach for an event on jobs, a Trump signature. Trump lands in Dayton on Wednesday.
