Donald Trump has been hoarding an advertising budget of at least $25M and is planing a $2M/week media blitz that could squash Clinton's already diminishing lead in head-to-head polls.
The initial wave of ads will focus on Trump’s vision and his stance on key issues — no bio spots necessary for the celebrity candidate — but that could change if any GOP rivals target him with negative commercials. “If you attack Trump, he will attack you 10 times as hard,” an adviser says. “We will not allow any attack to go unanswered.”
The Trump camp is working with a Florida-based advertising firm, as widely reported, but also with several other media companies, some of which are well-known in the political community, the sources say.
Their advantage, in Iowa, New Hampshire and beyond, is that the bombastic billionaire can just write a check for the TV campaign. Some pundits have expressed skepticism that Trump really wants to dig deeply into his personal fortune, but these sources insist he is ready to do just that — perhaps as much as $100 million for advertising overall. “Our super PAC,” says the adviser, “is Donald Trump’s bank account.”
Trump has remained bullet proof despite antics and remarks that would destroy any other politician's dreams of presidency. Respect for his candidacy is deserved and the prospect of him pulling off what most thought impossible is higher than ever.
An interesting side note: Rubio crushes Clinton heads up.
