New Site on Political Ads

This site is one more example of how the WashPost is finally trying to get into the digital age.  The site includes all the latest political advertisements by both the candidates and the super PACs.  Additionally it will tell you the cumulative and weekly advertisement spending for each candidate as well as where the ads are being shown.  Obviously right now you will see most of the spending in Iowa and New Hampshire.  According to the NYTimes, there have been 10,600 negative ads and 6000 positive ones in Iowa so far this year costing $3.3 and $1.3 million respectively.
