Adding fuel to the speculation that he is running a cash-strapped re-election campaign, Donald Trump has reportedly pulled television ads off the air entirely in a pair of key states.
With seven weeks left until Election Day, there are no cable ads running in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Furthermore, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign is investing as much as seven times more in advertising throughout the swing states — Wisconsin, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina — critical to either candidate’s victory in November.
Overall, Biden has spent nearly $100 million on ads airing on broadcast and cable television during the past month, compared to Trump’s $21.6 million.
News of the disparity comes in the wake of numerous reports of apparent cash shortages within the president’s campaign.
