A recent story by the Huffington Post brought to light the NumbersUSA's ad campaign in early primary and caucus states and the influence of our Presidential Hopefuls grade cards.

The Huffington Post mentions that NumbersUSA will spend at least $100,000 on advsertising before the South Carolina Republican primary on Jan. 21 in an effort to tie high unemployment levels to legal immigration. The story also states that NumbersUSA spent $100,000 during the lead-up to the Iowa caucuses. 

The Huffington Post quotes NumbersUSA's television ad verbatim in their story.

The story goes on to note the significance our grade cards play in elections...

NumbersUSA has become something of a bellwether for Republican presidential candidates, who cite the organization's immigration report card to prove they oppose unauthorized immigration.

The story details the report card system, the specific issues looked at and how grades are calculated. The story also noted that all candidates, including President Obama, have a "bad" rating for reducing immigration in general.
