New Romney Ad Focuses On His First Days in Office
On Friday, the presidential campaign of Mitt Romney released a television ad with four versions, each of which was tailored for a particular swing state – Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia. The ads are focused on the accomplishments Romney wants to make in just the first 100 days in office as president. Each ad is slightly different. In the ad for Ohio, voters are told that Romney “stands up to the Chinese” on the first day, he is president. The other states are told Romney moves to get Obamacare repealed on the first day of his presidency.
The economic issues are the main focus of the ads, which a new report from the Pew Research Center shows is the number one area out of a 10 where the Republican presidential candidate has an advantage over the President. The new poll also confirmed the economy is by far the most important issue during the election season for voters.
Those in Virginia who see the ad will hear that the Republican candidate will increase drilling offshore and put measures in place to attack the huge deficit in the country. Those that view the advertisements in Iowa will see Romney’s promise to try to reach a balanced budget. In North Carolina, viewers learn the Republican presidential candidate will look to lower taxes that end up killing jobs.
These new ads follow the ones that were run earlier by the Romney campaign that made promises of Day One in his presidency.
