American Crossroads, the Republican political action committee associated with strategist Karl Rove, is helping out the GOP in its battle against public unions. Crossroads GPS, an affiliate of American Crossroads, is airing an ad that goes after the unions and their support for President Barack Obama, Politico reports.

The ad is scheduled to appear on CNN, CNBC and Fox News for a week at a cost of $750,000.

“Why are Democrats shutting down state capitals?” says the narrator of the ad, with pictures of Madison, Wis. protestors in the background. “To protect a system that pays unionized government workers 42 percent more than non-union workers, a system that collects hundreds of millions in mandatory dues to back liberals who support government unions.”
