Obama Team Makes $25 Million Swing-State Ad Buy

The Obama campaign has $25 million set aside this month for a positive ad to run in 9 swing-states, strategist David Axelrod said Monday. The 60-second ad will highlight Obama's handling of the auto industry bailout and his victories on the economy and national security. Though it makes no mention of Mitt Romney, Axelrod said that the Obama team is prepared to respond to any ads aired by Romney's camp or by any other "contract killers over there in Super PAC land," MSNBC reported. "We will respond vigorously, we will treat every ad that comes from those entities as an ad from Gov. Romney." The Obama team, which officially kicked off the president's re-election campaign over the weekend, has already aired three television ads, each one responding to pro-Romney Super PAC ads.
