Romney's Make Your Own Ad Contest Is Down To Nine Finalists

Later this morning, Mitt Romney's campaign will unveil the nine finalists in its inaugural make-your-own ad campaign. Out of hundreds of submissions, the campaign has winnowed the field to nine, and Romney supporters can pick the one they want the Romney campaign to broadcast. And the campaign promises to air the ad in rotation, although they won't say where, or when.

To prevent multiple votes, voters are required to provide their e-mail addresses.

Some of the finalists are cute -- there's one with Romney and his grandkids. Others are picturesque -- there are lots of New Hampshire scenery shots. One quotes my National Journal colleague Charlie Cook, so I'll probably vote for it.

So far, Romney has spent almost $10M on television and radio ads.
