SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Have you heard Democratic congressional candidate Beau Babka on radio or television?

Didn't think so.

The challenger to Republican incumbent 3rd District Congressman Chris Cannon can't afford to put his ads on the air, so he's putting them on the Internet.

Babka's seven new radio spots can only be heard on the World Wide Web.

Cannon has outraised his little-known challenger, picking up nearly 16 times more money than the $37,000 Babka has raised.

Since Babka is unable to buy commercial time, his campaign sent links for the would-be radio ads to an e-mail list of about 400 people.
