Ad watch: Romney highlights top debate moment

Mitt Romney, "The Choice"

What it says: “The President has tried, but his policies haven't worked.”

What it means: As The Fix notes, Romney was at his best in the second debate when contrasting Obama's record with his own. This ad aims to keep that moment in voters' minds.

Who will see it: The day of the debate, Romney made a $12 million ad buy in nine swing states, with the most money going to Florida, Ohio and Virginia. Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin are also on the list.

The Democrats debate Thursday. Get caught up on the race.
The big questions after New Hampshire, from The Post's Dan Balz
Can Bernie Sanders cut into Hillary Clinton's strength in the minority community and turn his challenge into a genuine threat? And can any of the Republicans consolidate anti-Trump sentiment in the party in time to stop the billionaire developer and reality-TV star, whose unorthodox, nationalistic campaign has shaken the foundations of American politics?
Clinton in New Hampshire: 2008 vs. 2015
Hillary Clinton did about as well in N.H. this year as she did in 2008, percentage-wise. In the state's main counties, Clinton performed on average only about two percentage points worse than she did eight years ago (according to vote totals as of Wednesday morning) -- and in five of the 10 counties, she did as well or better.
