Following up on our post yesterday, here's a table showing where the McCain and Obama campaigns are putting their TV ad dollars.

Florida and Virginia remain top-tier battleground states. Both campaigns are also putting respectable resources into North Carolina -- a state where, after McCain ran up big leads, a new CNN/Times poll shows is within one point.

To see how this compares to June-July, see the chart here. Short version:

 
* In Florida, McCain is putting in major money after staying out of the state in the summer, thinking it was locked up. In a recent YouTube strategy video, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe says they're putting $39 million in Florida in a strategy that targets the 1.4 million African-American and young voters who were registered in 2004 but didn't vote.
 
* In North Carolina, Obama has drastically reduced his invesment, which was over $1.6 million in June/July.
 
* And both campaigns are spending less than they did in the summer in Virginia, but still a lot.
