Another grim Bain Capital ad airing in Florida



The pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action has a new TV ad in Florida, the latest in a series of negative spots about Mitt Romney's career at Bain Capital. The ad is part of a $10 million campaign and is also airing in Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

From a release: “'Stage' features Mike Earnest, a former employee at AMPAD in Marion, Indiana, who was tasked with building a 30-foot stage, on which it was announced that and his colleagues had lost their jobs. Hundreds of workers lost their jobs and promised health and retirement benefits while Mitt Romney and his firm walked away with over $100 million in profit."
