Democratic super PAC ad tries to undercut Romney
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Democratic super PAC supporting President Barack Obama is releasing a new TV ad that aims to undermine Republican Mitt Romney's appeal to middle-class workers as Republicans are gathering for their convention in Tampa, Florida.
The ad by Priorities USA Action features a Massachusetts small business owner who voted for Romney in 2002 but now says she feels "duped" by the former Massachusetts governor. The ad is airing in Florida during the GOP convention and criticizes the level of job growth in Massachusetts under Romney's watch.
The super PAC says the ad is part of a new $30 million project that will focus on how the Republican ticket's proposals would affect the middle class. It will air in Florida, Colorado, Ohio and Virginia.
