Donald Trump Is Making Major Ad Buy in Battleground States

The ads, costing $10 million, will be broadcast in Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, New Hampshire, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada.

The $10 million ad buy is the largest to date for Mr. Trump in the general election. His message will be broadcast in Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, New Hampshire, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada — a batch of battlegrounds that will likely determine the outcome of the race in November.

It concludes with a shot of the glistening new 1 World Trade Center.
