Obama campaign releases new battleground state ad: "Believes"

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--In advance of President Barack Obama's bus trip to Ohio and Pennsylvania, his campaign released a new ad to run in eight battleground states hitting Mitt Romney for his work at Bain Capital and Obama's program to "save" the auto industry. The ad is called "Believes" and is airing in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

The spot drew this reaction from Romney spokesman Amanda Henneberg: ""The Obama campaign continues to try to mislead voters with ads that independent fact checkers have repeatedly proven to be false. We are happy to put Governor Romney's record of job creation in the private sector, and as governor, up against President Obama's any day. Spending millions of dollars on untrue ads won't change the fact that President Obama's policies have left more than 23 million Americans struggling for work."
