CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- They have said they will be outspent, they have said they plan to overcome the deficit through a top-notch ground game. Now, they are saying they believe the expected hundreds of millions of dollars worth of anti-Obama advertising will reach overkill proportions and backfire.
“We think at some point voters are going to get tuned out,” Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said Monday.
The Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity said earlier Monday that it is planning to unveil a new ad backed by a $6.2 million buy in 11 key states, including North Carolina.
"The ad... features the powerful personal testimony of a individual who has experienced the life-threatening restrictions of an Obamacare style government run healthcare system," the group said in a statement announcing a 2:15 p.m. press conference here in Charlotte. "That individual will attend and explain why she chose to speak out now."
