PAC putting big bucks into Pa. TV ads for Romney

Posted: October 30, 2012

RESTORE OUR FUTURE, a political-action committee run by supporters of Mitt Romney, is putting $2 million into TV commercials in Pennsylvania in the last week of the race, with more than half of the money going to the Philadelphia market.

President Obama will also start to run ads in Pennsylvania, campaign manager Jim Messina said in a conference call with reporters Monday morning.

"They understand that they're not going to win in Ohio, so now they're getting desperate," Messina said. "They are not close in Pennsylvania. We are going to win Pennsylvania."

David Axelrod, Obama's senior campaign adviser, said the Democratic ads are a "precaution."

"We're not going to surrender any state to them in terms of airways," Axelrod said.
