GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - If you think politicians have taken over your TV, you’re almost right.

A new report says Green Bay and Madison are among the nation’s Top Five markets that had the largest numbers of campaign ads on TV and radio last week.

The ad-buying firm of SMG Delta said the Green Bay market had the most ads, followed by Denver, Cincinnati, Columbus Ohio, and Madison.

For the political season as a whole, SMG says Wisconsin ranks 9th in the amount spent on campaign ads, at $32 million.

Florida is Number One at $166 million, and Ohio is second at $160 million.

President Obama had a firm lead over Republican Mitt Romney in the Wisconsin polls until after the debates began earlier this month. Now, the two are in virtual dead heat in most independent polls.
