    This may lead to more cutbacks.

    If newspapers are showing ad declines in a hotly contested election year, how brutal is 2009 going to be?

    Not sure if elections have much sway. I can't recall any ads in my paper during the primaries or currently.

    Excellent point. I think both parties view the internet as the way to reach voters.

    That holds true for the presidential race, and to a lesser extent congressional races. But at the state, county, municipal level, print has always been the go-to source.

    Maybe my paper has some policy against it, then (hard to imagine, though, if it would make money).

    But there are some 35 municipalities in my county, and never any political ads.

    I figure they'll hire more advertising people and cut more editorial people.

    that just seems odd. we were over-run by them during the primaries for loca/state offices.

    Election ads are a TV boost. For the vast majority of newspapers, it doesn't mean shit.
