American Crossroads, “Actually Happened”
What it says: “Obama’s spending drove us $5 trillion deeper in debt, and now we have fewer jobs than when he started.”
What it means: Mitt Romney has more outside money on his side, but President Obama still leads in polls. American Crossroads is trying to change that with its largest ad buy yet, part of a synchronized economic message. The super PAC is spending $12 million for the presidential campaign along with a $4 million Senate ad buy from sister group Crossroads GPS.
Who will see it: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia — all the major battlegrounds. The Senate ads will air in North Dakota, Virginia and Montana.
Fact Checker: It’s no longer true that we have fewer jobs now than when Obama took office… thanks to recent numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
