The presidential race is already creeping onto local television in the 2012 battleground of Virginia.
The Republican National Committee previewed a new 30-second attack ad Wednesday that portrays President Barack Obama as a dupe of a China that has mastered the United States by January 2017, the hypothetical end of Obama's second term.
The ad has light penetration but a big social media component in Virginia. It depicts a wide-eyed girl in a darkened room fearfully viewing television images of Obama before a red-and-yellow Chinese flag and a cutaway shot of China's Communist leaders applauding.
RNC political director Rick Wiley says the ad is also airing in North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, Florida and Indiana — states Obama won in 2008 but Republican George W. Bush carried in his 2004 re-election.
