Ads Hit McCain In Home State, Obama In Florida

Arizona is McCain territory — he's made his home there since 1982 — and losing it to Barack Obama would sting. So it's no wonder wants to make that happen. With Obama's campaign gearing up in the state, the liberal group joins in with this TV ad, showcasing a Republican vet who is voting for Obama.

Obama's homestate of Illinois isn't really in play, so his foes are hitting him where it will hurt most. The Republican Jewish Coalition extended its ad buy in Florida with a $104,000 donation from David Kaufman, a Connecticut businessman who runs an eye care center.

It's down to the wire, folks, so this is your last chance to lay down $100k for the cause!

Whichever cause that might be.
