Draft Obama ad set to hit New Hampshire airwaves
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- DraftObama.org, a grassroots organization urging Sen. Barack Obama to throw his hat into the 2008 presidential race, will hit the airwaves next week with a sixty-second television ad called "Believe Again."

The ad, currently available on the organization's web site, scrolls through still photographs of Obama while clips his from past speeches are played. The ad begins with the words "we can replace fear with hope," and ends with "believe again."

Drafobama.org -- which officially launched two weeks ago and is not endorsed by the Obama -- has yet to buy airtime for the ad, but a spokesperson tells CNN they plan to buy time on cable stations in New Hampshire and Washington, DC as well as on New Hampshire affiliate WMUR.

Ben Stanfield, founder of DraftObama.org, says he hopes the ad will show the Illinois Democrat the level of support for his potential presidential run. "We want to show Senator Obama that there is a rapidly growing movement out there ready to support him if he runs for President," Stanfield said. "so the organization commissioned a TV ad conveying Obama's message of hope."
