Political ads all pitching the same topics

With the primary just a few days away, there are a lot of campaign ads on the airwaves.

But it might be hard to find the differences between the candidates using television to advertise. It’s not your imagination. Many ads say about the same thing. This year, the candidates talk about the same issues in their ads. They're hoping to draw in teachers and parents by talking about education - and seniors by talking about healthcare.

Brad Henry ad: "He'll work to lower the cost of prescription drugs now." Vince Orza ad: "I'll work to lower cost of prescription drugs for our senior citizens."

Prescription drugs are the most talked about issue in the ads this year. Education and teacher pay is next, then character values. The primary election is next Tuesday.
