GOP to air TV ads in Indiana

From NBC's Chuck Todd and Mark Murray
First Read has learned from TV ad-buying sources that the Republican National Committee's independent expenditure unit is active again. And it will launch a nearly $5 million advertising blitz beginning Tuesday in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and -- get this -- Indiana.

This is the first evidence we've seen that the GOP is now targeting the Hoosier State, a state Bush won 60%-39% in 2004.
