Va. Gubernatorial Candidate Cuccinelli Considering 30-Minute Ads | NewsMax.com

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is thinking of shaking up his gubernatorial campaign in the next few weeks with something few politicians have tried: running 30-minute television ads, according to Politico.

Cuccinelli’s team have looked into the cost of half-hour ad blocks for the month of September in all of Virginia’s major television markets.

Not only would running a half-hour ad be an expensive undertaking, it’s only been done by a few other candidates: Newt Gingrich produced a half-hour ad about energy during his 2012 campaign, and Barack Obama’s team aired a 30-minute film about their candidate as the 2008 race was drawing to a close, Politico reports.

Cuccinelli has been trailing former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe in the polls and his campaign is viewed as having lost ground over the summer.
