First Illinois TV ads air for Clin­ton

Chicago Sun-Times - - CITY BEAT | POLITICS - Lynn Sweet

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.
