Broadcast Blitz

With the political conventions behind us, and the race for governor moving toward the primaries on September 19th, the campaigns are gearing up for a broadcast blitz.

Several of the candidates have already hit the airwaves with ads.

For a perspective on the advertising strategies of the candidates, Bob Oakes speaks with Dan Payne, a Democratic consultant who worked with the Deval Patrick campaign until November of 2005.

This program aired on June 14, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
