First Illinois TV ads air for Clinton
Hillary Clinton’s first Illinois commercials started airing on Saturday with what the campaign described only as an “initial seven-figure ad buy in Illinois.”
Clinton’s team is using two spots — one narrated by actor Morgan Freeman, with an African-American focus, the other in which she rips Johnson Controls, the Wisconsin company she has been scorching from the campaign trail for trying to avoid U.S. taxes.
The ads are running in the Chicago, Champaign-Springfield- Decatur, Peoria-Bloomington and Rockford markets.
The Illinois primary is March 15.
