Obama-Allied Super PAC Takes Aim At Romney Over Factory Closure In New Hampshire

Posted: Updated:

Priorities USA Action, the super PAC supporting President Barack Obama, released a new television ad targeting Mitt Romney's record at private equity firm Bain Capital Thursday, timed to coincide with his Friday visit to New Hampshire.

The spot focuses on Bain's investment in Holson Burnes and subsequent closure of the photo album manufacturing company's plant in the Granite State.

"Bain doubled its $10 million investment into the clock and photo supply company," the narrator says. "But workers in New Hampshire lost their jobs as the company consolidated its operations overseas."

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee will stop in the pivotal swing state as part of his five-day, six-state bus tour.


UPDATE: 11:50 a.m. -- The Romney campaign has responded to the ad, in a statement from Deputy Press Secretary Amanda Henneberg.

President Obama’s allies are using false attacks to distract voters from the President’s out of touch comments that the private sector is 'doing fine.' Middle-class Americans aren’t doing fine and President Obama’s policies have not helped. 23 million Americans are struggling for work, incomes have fallen, and gas prices have doubled. On day one, Mitt Romney will put in place policies that will get the economy moving, bring back jobs, and help the middle class.
