Money starts flowing for Trump on TV but Clinton way ahead

10

August

Pro-Donald Trump ads are starting to show up in Florida but Hillary Clinton and allies continue to blow past him, new figures show.

Trump has gotten about $1.6 million in support, largely from the Rick Scott-led super PAC Rebuilding America Now. That's up sharply from the $300,000 NBC News reported last week.

Clinton and allies have spent nearly $21.7 million, but have little to show for it other than a fresh poll showing a toss-up in Florida.

From NBC, the Top 10 advertising markets:

1.     Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne, FL: $8.1 million

2.     Tampa-St. Pete-Sarasota, FL: $7.6 million

3.     Cleveland-Akron, OH: $6.2 million

4.     Las Vegas, NV: $5.2 million

5.     Columbus, OH: $4.2 million

6.     Denver, CO: $4.0 million

7.     Charlotte, NC: $3.7 million

8.     West Palm Beach-Ft, Pierce, FL: $3.4 million

9.     Boston, MA (NH market): $2.9 million

10.  Raleigh-Durham, NC: $2.6 million
