We are trying to raise money to run RPF member dusman's "Oath" ad in an outstanding Iowa news weekly, Iowa Farmer Today.
Here is the incredibly powerful ad we are hoping to run:

Here is the email I received from the Iowa Farmer Today advertising salesman:
Thanks for your inquiry. Iowa Farmer Today (IFT) is Iowa’s best-read farm publication. In fact we are the second largest newspaper serving Iowans. IFT reaches over 90% of Iowa’s farmers every week with our tabloid-sized newspaper. We do deliver all copies via US Postal Service, Periodical Class. Over 70,000 copies are mailed weekly. Each recipient has requested to receive the publication and provided us with written evidence of their farming operation. I personally have experience helping political campaigns, as I have run advertising in past years for Senator Grassley, Congressman Latham, Greg Ganske and many others.
A full page (9.75” wide x 10” tall) 4/color political ad costs $3517.50 per insertion. That works out to roughly 5 cents per farm household reached. You can learn much more about our publication from our online media kit. There we have a circulation map, rate card, readership survey, online rates and more. That information is available to you at:
Political ads receive our lowest published advertising rate, which is the Rural Living rate on our Display Ad rate sheet. Our online inventory is limited, so if you are interested in those ad positions please contact me again soon. We do require pre-payment for all political advertising.
I look forward to working with you and would be glad to answer any questions about Iowa Farmer Today. We publish Missouri Farmer Today as well and are part of an ag publications group called Lee Agri Media. You can learn more about advertising opportunities for those entities at: http://www.missourifarmertoday.com/site/advertise/ and http://www.leeagrimedia.com/.
Please reply or call with any questions,
And here is the link to Chip In to help get this ad into the hands of 70,000 Iowa farm HOUSEHOLDS (so, probably about 120,000 potential voters):
We are trying to raise $3,517.50 for a full page, statewide ad. The sooner we get to $3,517.50 the sooner the ad runs. Deadlines are 10 days prior to that week's issue, so as soon as we have the money, we'll place the ad. Please contribute!
This is 5 cents per Iowa farm HOUSEHOLD. This demographic certainly includes a very high number of '08 Huckabee voters who are looking for a reason to support a candidate in this year's caucus. Let's tell them how incredibly much support Dr. Paul gets from the military and get them to support the Champion of the Constitution!
