GOP-leaning group plans new $11 million ad blitz


Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -- A Republican-leaning independent group supporting GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is set to launch a major new television advertising blitz targeting women.

American Crossroads plans to run the ad in eight battleground states. The spot features a woman watching one of President Barack Obama's campaign commercials and asking about the jobs he has promised and wondering what the federal spending he has pushed for has produced.

She says, quote, "My family can't afford another four years like this."

American Crossroads was co-founded by Karl Rove, the longtime political counselor to former President George W. Bush. The group plans to spend $11.1 million to air the ad on national and local cable stations and in swing states Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia.
