Obama Campaign Ad Firms Signed On to Push Health-Care Overhaul
run last year have profited from his top priority as president
by taking on his push for health-care overhaul.
One is AKPD Message and Media, the Chicago-based firm
headed by David Axelrod until he left last Dec. 31 to serve as
a senior adviser to the president. Axelrod was Obama's top
campaign strategist and is now helping sell the health-care
plan. The other firm is Washington-based GMMB Campaign Group,
where partner Jim Margolis was also an Obama strategist.
