Patch Poll: Who Is Airing the Most Annoying Political TV Commercials?
With a nearby swing state, a major issue campaign and a heated Senate race, the DC media market has been inundated with ads.
You would think D.C. residents, in exchange for their lack of budget autonomy and a true vote in Congress, might be spared the onslaught of political commercials targeting swing states and independent voters.
Yet D.C. voters have been subjected to countless ads from more electorally-endowed neighboring jurisdictions, ranging from the Senate race in Virginia to more local issues like gambling and Question 7 in Maryland.
Tuesday is election day, meaning we will know the future leaders of our country and local governments. It also means the ads will cease.
Finally, we can get back to mattress commercials that ruin decent songs and too loud car commercials from suburban dealerships.
