Romney supporters welcome Obama to Florida with new TV ad


The GOP-supporting super PAC, American Crossroads, launched a $2.8 million attack ad against President Barack Obama Thursday in Florida, the same day the president began a two-day swing through the state.

The ad, entitled “Smoke,” opens with a stream of critical negative ads and then announces the president is "racking up $4 billion in new debt every day, the unemployment rate is stuck above 8 percent, and family incomes are falling. President Obama can’t run on that record."

The $9.3 million ad buy will run in Florida and eight other targeted states for approximately eleven days, the super-PAC said. American Crossroads was founded by former George W. Bush advisor Karl Rove. It also airs in:  Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
