Trump campaign cuts back on ads in Minnesota
October 8, 2020
Donald Trump's presidential campaign is pulling millions of dollars worth of television ads off the air in Minnesota as Democratic challenger Joe Biden maintains a steady lead in polls in the state.
The Trump campaign, which pledged to spend $14 million on ads in Minnesota earlier in the campaign cycle, has been slashing spending in the state since mid-September, according to ad tracking firm Advertising Analytics and filings with the Federal Communications Commission.
The company's tracking also shows the Trump campaign pulling back ad spending in other Midwestern battlegrounds such as Wisconsin and Michigan while buying more TV time in the swing states of Florida, Arizona and North Carolina.
