He has been spending the money, mostly in Super Tuesday states, so if you don't live in one of those, good luck seeing the advertisements.
Advertising is not cheap. I heard it costs between 3-4 million to do a week of television commercials in any one state, so $20million isn't going to
get you too far. The reason why it seems like his campaign is not spending the money is because he is getting ZERO free publicity from the mainstream
media. The amount of attention Romney McCain Clinton Obama etc etc have received so far is easily the equivalent of hundreds of millions of dollars
I think one of the best ways to spend $3million would have been to do a Super Bowl commercial, maybe even spend $5million on a 60 second spot. BUT
Fox has said they will not allow any political advertising during the Super Bowl, so that's out. If you see a National advertisement (rumor is that
Ron Paul has been trying to buy up local spots during the Super Bowl, so again, national advertisements have been banned) then raise hell. Those of
us that watched the debate on Wednesday watched Anderson Cooper say to Ron Paul "I promise you you'll have a question about [this topic] coming up
in 2 questions" when Ron Paul tried to interject himself into the debate. Low and behold, 40 minutes later and 8 questions later, it was blatantly
obvious Anderson lied. So watch out for Fox lying and airing other candidates commercials....
