My personal, far-from-scientific take on the Kilroy v. Stivers TV ad battle is that Mary Jo Kilroy is totally kicking Steve Stivers’ ass.
I have been seeing Kilroy ads for months pretty much non-stop. And they are running at least 2-1 against Stivers’ ads.
I challenge you to find anyone in Ohio’s 15th district who doesn’t know that Steve Stivers is a former banking lobbyist.
And it looks like that isn’t going to change in the days leading up to the election. According to politickeroh.com:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has purchased an additional $100,000 of advertising time in the Columbus-area district, according to a well-placed Democratic source familiar with the committee’s buying plans. In total, the DCCC has reserved $600,000 in ad time on local stations for the last week of the campaign.
In addition the DCCC released the results of a poll showing Kilroy leading Stivers 44 to 36.
