Pro-Obama Group Runs Anti-Romney Ads in Michigan

Wednesday, 22 Feb 2012 04:48 PM

 

An independent group supporting President Barack Obama's re-election bid is running ads in Michigan chiding Republican candidate Mitt Romney for opposing the $80 billion auto industry bailout.

The ad from Priorities USA Action draws attention to a column Romney wrote for The New York Times in 2008 headlined "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt." Romney said General Motors and Chrysler should go through a managed bankruptcy process rather than receive federal aid.

The group is spending about $232,000 to air the ads on cable and broadcast stations in cities across Michigan, whose primary is Tuesday. Polls show Romney and Rick Santorum locked in a tight race.

Romney grew up in Michigan and his father served as governor of the state.

Santorum also opposed the bailout.
