New Romney Ad Touts Days as Governor

June 8, 2012

 

President Obama has been attempting to define Mitt Romney’s time as governor in a negative light of late, and on Friday, the Romney campaign had a response. A new ad, the fourth in a series about what he’d do as president on Day One, focuses on promoting his record in Massachusetts.

 

The ad, set to go up in Iowa as Romney campaigns there today, begins: “As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney had the best jobs record in a decade.” It also touts the fact that the state’s unemployment rate fell to  4.7 percent when Romney left office.

A narrator notes that “he balanced every budget without raising taxes,” though he did hike fees instead and Massachusetts has a balanced budget requirement.

The ad appears to be a pitch to independents by noting his accomplishments: “He did it by bringing parties together to cut through gridlock.”
