Super PAC Ad Launched For Campaign That Rails Against Super PACs

Posted: Aug 07, 2012 7:35 AM



Obama campaign leader David Axelrod complained about the Citizens United ruling just last week, yet a pro-Obama super PAC has launched its first anti-Romney ad. The ad brings back the "Romney is a vulture capitalist" argument, one that failed with voters the first time around months ago.

The ad, sponsored by Priorities USA Action, features a former employee at GST Steel who lost his job and health insurance when Bain closed the Kansas-based steel plant in 2001. The man says he doesn't think Romney "understands what he's done to people's lives" by closing the plant.

The ad is the fifth in a series of spots from Priorities targeting Romney's business record, the centerpiece of the presumptive Republican nominee's campaign. The ad is running in five battleground states: Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
