One Campaign Buys $1.8 Million In Ads

The anti-poverty ONE campaign is buying $1.8 million in ads in the presidential battlegrounds of Iowa and New Hampshire. The ads will highlight the presidential candidates' records and proposals to alleviate poverty and improve global health.

ONE also plans a get-out-the-vote effort in early primary states to mobilize voters.
The ad buy is part of ONE Vote ’08: Saving Lives, Securing Our Future, an ongoing effort to influence the election. Earlier, ONE posted videos from the candidates describing their positions on health and poverty issues.

Two former Senate Majority Leaders, Sens. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), will unveil the ads this afternoon.
