Romney Super-PAC Will Carpet-Bomb Swing States With Biggest Blitz Yet

Paging all TV-watching swing state voters: The campaign ad blitz clogging up your airwaves is about to get worse.

The pro-Romney super-PAC Restore Our Future on Tuesday launched a $17.7 million ad campaign targeting 10 swing states around the country—the super-PAC's single largest buy yet. Restore Our Future's latest campaign will consist of two ads: one featuring a wounded Iraq veteran hailing Mitt Romney as a man who "cares deeply about people who are struggling"; and another spot slamming President Obama for high unemployment, "crushing debt," and declining incomes.

The two ads will run throughout the next week in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Restore Our Future's pro-Romney ad can be viewed above. Here's the anti-Obama ad:

Restore Our Future—run by former Romney aides Carl Forti, Charles Spies, and Larry McCarthy—is arguably the king of the super-PACs. Restore Our Future's sole purpose is to help Romney win the presidency, and the super-PAC has raised a staggering $111.5 million to do that. The super-PAC's donors include casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, Texas homebuilder Bob Perry, Houston Texans owner Robert McNair, and Oxbow Carbon, the energy company run by Bill Koch, brother to Charles and David Koch.
