Where they’re spending: Realtors buy $100k in web ads

Do Internet ads really work in political campaigns? The National Association of Realtors seems to think so and is making a six-figure web buy to help out Rep. Bill Foster, D-Ill. They’re also spending a crazy amount on mailers to blanket the district of endangered Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa.

Meanwhile, National Right to Life sent mail in a whole bunch of district’s.
