Chicago misses out on election-ad boon

Chicago, Illinois, television stations are out of the running in what's shaping up to be the most lucrative political season ever for advertising spending. Campaign spending on television commercials nationally is likely to exceed $1.2 billion this year, political consultants say. That would be nearly double 2000's total. The United States President George W. Bush and his challenger, the United States Senator John Kerry already are attacking each other over the airwaves in battleground states such as Michigan and Missouri, before either has formally won his party's nomination. But the President's apparent decision to concede Illinois to Kerry means neither is advertising much in Chicago.
