President Barack Obama's reelection campaign released two new TV ads on Wednesday, hitting presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney for raising a host of fees in place of tax hikes during his time as Massachusetts governor and for outsourcing jobs in the public and private sector.
Both ads will be aired in nine swing states: New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. The campaign did not say how much money it was putting behind the ads.
Watch the ad on fee increases, "Mosaic" (the campaign has put supporting research information on the Web here).
Watch the ad on outsourcing, "Come and Go," (the campaign has also put supporting research information on the Web for this ad here).
“These misleading ads are the latest effort by the Obama campaign to distract attention from the President's failed policies that have led to high unemployment and falling incomes," Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an emailed statement.
"Mitt Romney was a successful businessman and governor with a decades-long record of helping to create American jobs, in contrast to President Obama's hostility to free enterprise that has left millions of Americans out of work," Saul said. "It's still the economy and the American people aren't stupid."
