ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia is one of 18 states where a new ad by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama will begin airing on Friday.

The 60-second spot is called "Country I Love" and offers a biographical sketch of the Illinois senator. It's Obama's first TV ad since clinching his party's nomination.

Georgia has voted heavily Republican in recent years, and the GOP believes the state will award its 15 electoral votes to John McCain, the GOP nominee in waiting, in November.

But Obama thinks he can compete in the state, which has a large number of black voters. He has paid campaign staff in Georgia busy registering voters.
