UPDATED: Statewide candidates’ TV ads

UPDATED: Statewide candidates’ TV ads

By TODD  STACY, Alabama Daily News

As Governor Pappy “Pass the Biscuits” O’Daniel taught us, “We ain’t one-at-a-timin’ here. We’re MASS COMMUNICATIN’!”

Candidates for office in Alabama’s primary elections are on the airwaves with advertisements. There’s a lot to campaign ad tradecraft: when to go up, what’s the right mix of broadcast and cable to reach your target audience, how to get noticed in a crowded field.

Below is my updated rundown of TV ads for major candidates in Alabama’s June 5 primary. Don’t see your campaign’s ad? Please email me at todd@ALDailyNews.com. The only rule is you have to be airing the ad on television, not just YouTube or Facebook.
