Nebraska Ranks 4th in Money Spent on Campaign TV Ads
Political campaigns and outside groups have poured so much money into state-level television ads this election cycle that Nebraska now ranks fourth nationally in the amount spent per voter, new analysis shows.
In 2000, gross earnings for the Nebraska lobby were recorded as $3,002,853. Since then, we have seen increases each year reaching an all-time high in 2019 of $19,405,061. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, however, brought the steady growth in total earnings to a halt.
