ONE Campaign Launches $1.8 Million Ad Initiative Urging Voters to Ask About Presidential Candidates' Positions on Global Development Issues
December 13, 2007
The ONE Campaign will launch a $1.8 million advertising initiative that aims to encourage voters to ask presidential candidates about their positions on global development issues, the AP/Google.com reports. The 30-second television ads are scheduled to air for two weeks beginning on Friday in Iowa and New Hampshire, and on network cable (Sanner, AP/Google.com, 12/11).
The campaign, which does not endorse any candidate, has spent about $690,000 in Iowa; $625,000 in New Hampshire; and $710,000 nationwide on the TV ads. Ten presidential candidates so far have pledged to fight global hunger and diseases such as HIV/AIDS if elected, the AP/Google.com reports. ONE Vote '08 on Tuesday posted candidates' videos discussing their proposals on its Web site (AP/Google.com, 12/11). The group's Web site features a comparison of the candidates' positions and urges its 2.5 million members nationwide to use the comparison to determine which candidate to support, The Politico reports (The Politico, 12/11).
