New Super PAC ad in Florida resumes Bain attacks on Romney



A new Super PAC ad that will run in Florida and other states and resumes criticism of Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital. The spot from the pro-Obama Priorities USA Action features a former worker at a steel plant in Kansas City. Bill Burton, head of the PAC, said it's part of a $7 million buy on Romney's corporate experience. (PolitiFact has background on the steel plant here)

Below, Romney response.

Romney Florida spokesman Alberto Martinez: "This is another misleading attack, funded by President Obama’s allies, and designed to distract from the fact that the American economy isn't close to "doing fine" as a result of President Obama's failed policies. President Obama’s own supporters – even former President Clinton – have criticized these distorted attacks on free enterprise, calling them ‘nauseating’ and ‘unfair.’ Unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney has the record and pro-growth plan to fix the economy and get our country back on the right track."
