In a new ad out Tuesday, the Obama campaign goes after Mitt Romney on debt, saying that under his leadership, Massachusetts had more debt per person than any other state. The ad is the second ad to attack Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts. Previously, the campaign focused on his jobs record as 47th in job creation. “When Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts was number one," the narrator says. "Number one in state debt.”
With President Obama under constant fire from Romney and conservatives over jobs and the debt, the campaign is pointing out that Romney had the same problems in Massachusetts. The campaign is using a "significant buy" to put the ad on air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, according to Politico.
