TV Ad War Heating Up Before Nevada’s GOP Caucus

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Presidential campaign ads have hit Nevada’s airwaves with the state’s Feb. 4 Republican caucuses just over a week away.

Texas Congressman Ron Paul is running a 30-second spot that links his rivals to a whimpering Shih Tzu dog and highlights his plan to reduce federal spending by a trillion dollars in one year.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has several ads running, including a biographical ad that focuses on his steady marriage and business career. Another ad focuses on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, saying Barack Obama would be happy to face Gingrich in the general election.

The pro-Romney super PAC, Restore Our Future, is airing an ad that alleges former House Speak Nancy Pelosi has dirt on Gingrich that could sink his campaign in the general election.
