Rutherford Pulls Campaign Ads

Updated: Thursday, February 20 2014, 02:50 PM CST

One day after the Gubernatorial debate, State Treasurer Dan Rutherford is campaigning in Sangamon County. We caught up with him this afternoon at a GOP luncheon.

Last month, Rutherford announced plans to air television ads for his campaign. But now, there are reports saying that ads are being pulled.

Rutherford says his ads are running this week in downstate TV markets.
But the campaign is making some changes just weeks ahead of the election.

"What we did is we released the reserve. What that means is that campaigns will reserve space all the way through. We pulled those because we just want to analyze which markets later on and determine where and what to do at the right time rather than having booked one month out," said Rutherford.

Although he says ads are currently running in downstate Illinois, future ads that were scheduled to run on our sister station ABC Newschannel 20 and in Champaign have been pulled.
