Do you live in Central Florida? Do you watch TV? Do you pay for cable? Are you more inclined towards one candidate over an other after seeing a barrage of attack ads all day, every day?  

If you answered yes to every single one of those questions, then you're the reason the I-4 Corridor currently ranks the highest in the country for campaign ad spending. 

A total of $8.1 million has already been spent this year in the Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne TV market, reports NBC News. Just chalk it up as one of  the "luxuries" of being in a swing state.

This makes us the flushest market in the U.S., besting the second place Tampa-St. Pete-Sarasota market with $7.6 million worth of political ads, and Ohio's Cleveland-Akron market with a mere $6.2 million. 

Sucks for those guys.
