Crossroads Launches Biggest Ad Campaign Yet

American Crossroads super PAC and its affiliate Crossroads GPS are about to unleash their biggest ad offensive of the 2012 campaign, with $16 million going to one week’s worth of TV and radio ads in eight key presidential states and four Senate battlegrounds.

For the presidential race, American Crossroads is putting out an $11 million spot focusing on President Barack Obama’s promise that his stimulus package would push unemployment down to 5.6 percent by now, Politico reports. The rate actually stands at 8.1 percent.

“Obama’s spending drove us $5 trillion deeper in debt, and now we have fewer jobs than when he started,” the ad’s narrator says.

The piece will be shown in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia. Crossroads GPS is shelling out $1 million for radio ads in in those states.

That leaves $4 million of spending for the Karl Rove-linked groups in the Senate races in North Dakota, Virginia, Montana, and Florida.

“Obama’s weak leadership has yielded weak results and a weaker America. Staying on Obama’s course means a weaker America every day," says Steven Law, president of American Crossroads.

The Crossroads groups are slated to spend $300 million in total during the election campaign to boost GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his fellow Republicans.
