Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have both campaigned in Ohio recently.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have both campaigned in Ohio recently.

This weekend will bring a new barrage of TV ads in Ohio and other battleground states – including the first spots from Republican Donald Trump.

Trump’s first ad contrasts his view of what the US will be like under a Hillary Clinton administration with his plans on what appear to be his favorite issues – the border with Mexico, immigration and national security. The ads, which start airing on Friday, are part of a two week, $4 million dollar buy in Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Meanwhile, Clinton plans to spend $17 million on new ads in those same states along with three others. Ohio saw more Clinton ads last week than any other state did, and one analyst says a Clinton ad aired in Ohio once every eight minutes last week.
