John Edwards unveiled his first New Hampshire television ad, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.
"It's time for the President of the United States to ask Americans to be patriotic about something other than war," Edwards says in the 30-second spot.
Sen. Barack Obama is running his first television ads in Iowa, according to The Politico.
"One stresses his ability to work across party lines, even featuring a Republican Illinois legislator. The other is more biographical, and builds his liberal credentials in a non-confrontational way, with discussion of his decision to leave Harvard Law to work in civil rights and a voiceover from Larry Tribe."
Though it will be a relatively small ad buy, Marc Ambinder notes "the ads will be repeated ad nauseum on national cable television as well as in Iowa spot markets, so their actual reach will be magnified considerably."
