New Romney ad calls Obama record a disappointment

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) — A new TV spot from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney calls President Barack Obama's economic record a disappointment.

The ad is targeting Florida voters on Thursday, the same day Obama campaigns in Orlando, in the center of the state.

The spot says Obama expressed concerned about Florida's economy when he ran for president four years ago but suggests he was too focused on his health care bill to reduce unemployment, home foreclosures or poverty.

Obama released an ad Thursday that says Romney's economic proposals would mean bigger tax bills for everyone but the wealthiest Americans.

Romney's campaign won't say where its new ad is running. Obama's ad will air in eight states, including Florida.
