The Obama campaign has reserved a whopping $13 million in additional ad time in Florida, a Republican ad buying source told CNN.
The new buy is for thirty second broadcast TV spots starting Friday and running through Election Day. The buy includes an ad released Friday, entitled “Balance,” which compares Obama’s tax plan with Romney’s.
“Mitt Romney’s plan: huge tax cuts for millionaires, tax breaks for oil companies and corporations that ship jobs overseas, adding trillions to the deficit,” the narrator says in the spot.
The ad includes images of mansions, an oil rig, and what seems to be an overseas job site.
The narrator then describes Obamas’ plan as a “balanced approach that asks the wealthy to pay a little more, eliminates tax breaks for outsourcing and oil subsidies, cuts government spending, and reduces the deficit by four trillion.”
The $13 million buy is part of a $77 million media purchase the Obama campaign made in eight battleground states.
