New Obama ad highlights equal pay for women

We told you battleground Virginia would get flooded with TV ads. And we weren’t kidding.

Obama unveiled another new ad Thursday after two ones on Wednesday.

“First Law” touts Obama’s commitment to having women be paid the same as men in the workplace. The ad is the first in a series that highlights Obama’s commitment to issues important to women and their families, according to the campaign.

The ads also are airing in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Nevada and Ohio.

“President Obama’s economic policies of overspending and increasing debt are putting a financial burden on the next generation,” said Allie Brandenburger, spokeswoman for presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney. “Women have suffered disproportionately in the Obama Economy, and over 400,000 women have lost their jobs since President Obama took office. Women realize Obama’s presidency hasn’t lived up to the promises of his 2008 campaign and they are looking for a leader like Mitt Romney who knows how to create jobs, balance the budget, and preserve the American dream for our children and grandchildren.”
