The pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future released a television ad Monday contrasting the economic plans from Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, arguing that Romney's private sector experience better prepared him to solve America's economic problems.
"The debate this fall: Who can turn around America's economy?" a narrator asks in the commercial, which the group said it was spending $10.5 million to air in eleven battleground states.
"Mitt Romney spent his life in the private sector, creating thousands of jobs," the narrator continues. "Barack Obama wasted $800 billion on a failed stimulus and the jobless rate went up. Romney cut spending and balanced budgets without raising taxes. Obama has added $5 trillion in debt. Proven leadership to fix the economy. Mitt Romney."
The group said the ad would air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin. The $10.5 million buy is the group's largest to date.
Restore Our Future has previously run ads hitting Obama for his economic record, including a $10.48 million buy to air a spot showcasing the unemployment rate rising to 8.3% in July.
Restore Our Future also completed an ad buy during the London Olympics touting Romney's record of running the 2002 Salt Lake City games.
