LESS THAN $350,000 SPENT ON POLITICAL ADS IN MISSOURI FOR UPCOMING ELECTION
The absence of top-of-the-ticket statewide races in the November general election is resulting in far fewer political ads on Missouri television than in most other states.
A survey released Wednesday by the Washington-based Center for Public Integrity shows that a total of seven candidates spent just $335,800 on TV ads through early September, a 59 percent decline from the comparable period in 2010. By contrast, TV ad spending in 31 states topped $1 million.
The survey found that much of the spending came from independent political groups no longer constrained by donation limits following a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
The Missouri auditor's race is the only statewide contest in an election year that doesn't include the office of governor or either U.S. Senate seat.
