Clinton To Run First Presidential Campaign Television Ads In Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Television viewers in Iowa will soon be seeing more of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

A source familiar with the campaign's strategy tells The Associated Press that the New York senator will launch her first television ads of the presidential campaign in the state where polls show her in a tight race with rivals Barack Obama and John Edwards.

The move intensifies Clinton's campaign in Iowa and comes on the eve of her latest campaign swing in the state. Iowa is slated to hold its caucuses on January 14th, though the date is certain to change after South Carolina Republicans moved up their primary last week.

It is unclear how much Clinton will spend on the ads.
