Crossroads GPS, the conservative superpac, announced Friday that it will launch a massive $2.7 million TV advertising blitz in North Carolina that criticizes President Barack Obama.
The first ad, called "excuses," says Obama has used a series of excuses for a bad economy rather than taking strong action.
"We're suffering though one of the weakest economic recoveries in our history, and the one thing President Obama is offering is slogans and excuses," said Steven Law, president of Crossroads GPS. Crossroads is closely associated with Karl Rove, the former chief political advisor to President George W. Bush.
The ad campaign is part of a $25 million advocacy effort starting July 10 and running through early August. Besides North Carolina, the ad campaign is running in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia.
