The spending is leaving its mark on Florida, the site of today’s crucial GOP primary. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and his allies, especially the pro-Romney Restore Our Future, aired 12,768 television commercials in the state through Wednesday compared with 210 by former House speaker Newt Gingrich and his supporters, a study released Monday by the Wesleyan Media Project shows.

“It’s one-sided domination,” said Erika Franklin Fowler, the project’s co-director and a Wesleyan University political scientist. “If you have a television on in Orlando or Fort Myers or West Palm Beach,you are seeing Romney ads and very few pro-Gingrich ads.”

And so it goes….

Hopefully this will get over soon, and Mitt can get to convincing half the people he didn’t just say half the things the things he said to get the nod.
