WASHINGTON (CNN) - Americans for Prosperity, the conservative group backed by Kansas billionaires Charles and David Koch plans to “essentially own the front page of YouTube” on Thursday, when Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney officially accepts the nomination in Tampa, according to Levi Russell the groups director of public affairs.
The group is buying the large banner space at the top of YouTube’s main page. “We’ll be running a poll on how visitors feel about President Obama and they’ll have the ability to cycle through 3 of our most recent national TV spots,” Russell said.
Two of the ads feature testimonials from people who supported President Obama in 2008 but are now having voter remorse.
The third ad will focus on what the group says are “Obama’s failed promises to reign in federal spending.”
The You Tube banner will also direct visitors to a special website where they can find more information on Americans for Prosperity.
The cost for this big splash is estimated at five hundred thousand dollars per day.
