Mitt Romney launched a new statewide TV ad addressed to N.C. voters Friday. Charlotte’s skyline features prominently in “First 100 Days: North Carolina.” And the narrator promises that the former Massachusetts governor’s leadership will bring “the promise of new banking and high-tech jobs … (and) a new start” for the state.
How? By repealing President Barack Obama’s health care plan and cutting taxes “that kill jobs,” the ad says.
Democrat Obama’s re-election campaign, meanwhile, began running two three TV ads in North Carolina this week, two of which criticize Romney’s record as a CEO and as a governor.
The Romney campaign did not provide information about the concentration of the commercial buy or where the ads are appearing -- meaning it's unknown if voters will even get the message.
