In the time leading up to the Iowa Caucuses and New Hampshire primaries, voters in those two states saw a ton of political ads for the various presidential hopefuls.But with just a few days to go to the Missouri primary, there seem to be few radio and television ads for any of the remaining Deomcratic candidates. Don Hicks, Presidentand CEO of the Missouri Broadcasters Association says the other contests were different animals than Missouri’s primary. But Hicks believes with Missouri’s delegate richprimary, 88 delegates up for grabs, and native son St. Louis Congressman Richard Gephardt out of the race, the other candidates might be missing the boat.
