Hillary Clinton is planning a massive television ad buy during the Olympics, on the heels of accepting the Democratic nomination for president next week in Philadelphia.  

Hillary for America has reserved time for a high seven-figure national network and cable advertising campaign during the Summer Olympics, which begin August 5, according to a senior campaign official.  

The aide said it's an effort to meet voters where they are and run a national campaign.  

Donald Trump has yet to air a television ad for the general election.
