    In another episode from the "I only surround myself with the best people"...


    Less than five weeks until the election, Donald Trump has canceled more than $1.6 million in television ads set to air next week in eight crucial battleground states, according to an ad tracking service.


    The cancellations cover the four biggest states on the battleground map — Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and North Carolina — as well as four other states, New Hampshire, Maine, Iowa, and Colorado.

    So what? They shift the money around as the situation fluctuates - the hacks at Leftico are just trying to make a big deal out of nothing. They never did explain to me Hillary's weird decision to drop Florida and Ohio despite being in a statistical tie in both places, but whatever. Here is where the Trump money is going now:

    He mostly pulled the money out of rural areas and is dumping it in the suburbs of cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, Hillary is running ads non-stop in both the Seattle and Portland markets FWIW.
