What's your reaction to the political ad blitz?
Leading up to Super Tuesday, when 10 states hold their GOP primary elections, Republican candidates and outside groups that can raise and spend unlimited donations -- aka 'super PACs' -- are pouring millions into political ads meant to sway voters in each state.
As the New York Times reports, super PACs are playing the role of attack dog ahead of the primaries, bankrolling big TV, radio and mailing initiatives that have been overwhelmingly negative. Total super PAC spending has topped $67.5 million so far, with nearly $10 million alone going into Super Tuesday states.
