As the conventions drew to a close, Mitt Romney’s campaign began a new ad blitz on Friday, releasing 15 new television spots in eight states.
The ads, titled “A Better Future” and focused on President Obama’s economic record, are running in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia.
The spots, which zoom in on different aspects of the dueling Romney and Obama economic plans for the country, repeat a theme at last week's Republican convention: America is not better off than when Obama took office.
“This president can ask us to be patient, this president can tell us it was someone else’s fault,” the ads show Romney saying on stage during his convention address. “But this president cannot tell us that you’re better off today than when he took office.”
