The article discusses the impact of WMUR's rates on media budgets of future campaigns. It indicates that Republican spending on WMUR's broadcast has gone down to 40% in the absence of a Democratic contest and the foregone conclusion of Mitt Romney's eventual victory. It notes how advertisers from both sides of campaign had to use more efficient options such as increasing cable and radio budgets and buying national broadcast shows. It cites Bill Binnie who developed competition against WMUR.
