Nutter's Ads Win Prize

The political ad operation, The Campaign Group, has won a national award for the tv ads that helped Mayor Nutter get elected.

The prize, known as a Pollie award, is awarded by the American Association of Political Consultants. The Campaign Group won a gold prize in the "Television Campaign" category.

"They are great," Nutter said of the admakers.

Nutter said he talked with Campaign Group founders Neil Oxman and Doc Sweitzer and consultant J.J. Balaban about how to approach the ads. But he stressed that all the credit goes to them.

"They are the creative geniuses," he said.
