Pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action is up with a new $4 million ad campaign attacking Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital in five swing states. Like the Obama campaign's ads which came out yesterday, the Priorities USA Action ad uses the example of GST Steel in Missouri closing under Bain Capital.
The ad features Pat Wells, a former employee of GST Steel who lost his job and benefits when the Kansas City plant closed.
"If we lost, they made money. If we survived, they made money. It’s as simple as that," Wells said. "He promised us the same things he’s promising the United States. And he’ll give you the same thing he gave us. Nothing. He’ll take it all."
At the end of the 30-second spot, text on the screen reads "If Mitt Romney wins, the middle class loses."
The ad campaign is airing in Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virginia and includes both an online and TV presence.
