Obama up in Florida with new ad on auto industry

The Obama campaign this morning announced a new TV ad that focuses on the auto industry recovery. It'll run in Florida and Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa, North Carolina and Colorado. The campaign did not provide details on the buy, though David Axelrod said on a conferene call that $25 million would be spent this month on ads.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said, “For someone whose campaign slogan is 'forward,' President Obama spends a lot of time looking backward and blaming others for the state of the American economy. While Obama may want you to forget he's been president for the past three and a half years, the fact that his policies have wreaked havoc on the middle class from high unemployment, high energy and higher education costs won't be forgotten. America deserves better than Obama's brand of hype and blame.”
