(WASHINGTON) -- A new one-minute ad by the Obama campaign titled Heard it Before doubles down on Democrats’ theme and message of last week, namely that Romney has not proven himself to be an effective job creator and didn’t keep his promises on state debt and size of government.
The new ad will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. A campaign official describes this as a “significant buy.” The first major Obama for America buy launched on May 7 — the positive flight of spots on Obama’s record — was $25 million and ran in the same nine states.
As part of the push, Massachusetts state officials will begin to travel to battleground states this week to discuss Romney’s record as governor. Those events begin Monday in Ohio and Iowa, a campaign official said.
