The Associated Press reports that the GOP outside group Crossroads GPS is going on air with a $25 million anti-Obama ad campaign — a buy that my colleague Alex Burns reported was on its way yesterday:
An independent group favoring Republican presidential rival Mitt Romney is launching a $25 million, monthlong advertising campaign in 10 states against President Barack Obama, further escalating an expensive TV ad war in presidential battlegrounds six months before Election Day.
Crossroads GPS plans to open the effort Thursday by spending $8 million on a TV ad that castigates Obama on the economy by using his own words against him.
"We need solutions, not just promises," says a 60-second commercial that's to run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
That essentially matches the $25 million, 9-state ad buy that the Obama campaign announced last week.
