There are two television ads currently running to bolster Democratic candidate for Governor Jay Nixon. But only one is being paid for by Nixon. The other ad, now on television in the Springfield market, is bought and paid for by the SEIU (Service Employees International Union.)
SEIU, which bills itself as the nation’s largest union of health care workers, said it is airing the ad to highlight Nixon’s commitment to making health care more affordable.
It's reportedly a $450,000 ad buy for Nixon. The KC Star Prime Buzz blog has a nice run down on the claims it makes.
