In a new move aimed at better defining his campaign and refocusing attention on the economy, Mitt Romney is running two new ads in Virginia and other key battleground states, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch
"My plan is to help the Middle Class," Romney says in one 30-second spot dubbed the "The Romney Plan, in which he lays out what amounts to a three-point plan for righting the economy.
"Have tax policies, regulations, and healthcare policies that help small businesses," he continues. "We put those in place, we'll add 12 million jobs in four years."
The second ad, called "Failing American Families," attacks President Barack Obama on the national debt and lower income levels.
"Under Obama, families have lost over $4,000 a year in income," a narrator says. "And the national debt is now $16 trillion and growing."
"We can't keep borrowing and spending and passing on more debt to our kids. And I'll stop it," Romney declares in a brief clip in the ad.
Both ads are part of a national effort by the Republican presidential nominee to shift the focus of the election back to the economy.
