PHILADELPHIA- Hillary Clinton is planning a massive television ad buy during the Olympics, on the heels of accepting the Democratic nomination for president.  

Hillary for America has reserved time for a high seven-figure national network and cable advertising campaign during the Summer Olympics, which begin August 5, according to a senior campaign official.  

The aide said it's an effort to meet voters where they are and run a national campaign.

Republicans are still waiting for Donald Trump to make his case to voters with paid advertising.
