He's still mulling a third sprint for the White House, but a supporter of Mitt Romney already has a radio ad touting his ability to "connect with America" – and taking some sharp shots at other possible Republican rivals in 2016.
"In a world where Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and Sarah Palin are considering a run for the presidency, one wants to sell you a bridge, one wants to provide a bridge to immigrants, and one built a bridge to nowhere," a narrator intones
in the TMR Multimedia ad.
"Only one man can bridge the gap between Republicans and connect with America: Mitt Romney."
The bridge metaphor references Christie's so-called Bridge-gate scandal
over lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September 2013, while Bush has supported
immigration reform and Palin fought accusations during the 2008 presidential campaign that she'd supported a "bridge to nowhere"
project that became synonymous with government waste.
"America, don’t burn your bridges. Mitt Romney. Right for America," the ad concludes.
The Hollywood, Fla.-based production company, owned by Romney supporter Jay Schorr, is acting independently of the former Massachusetts governor, the Washington Times reports.
"We believe in Mitt Romney," Schorr said, Examiner.com reports.
"Mitt Romney was right in what he said in 2012 about Russia and China, among other things. [President Barack] Obama’s response was to mock and ridicule. America now knows who was right. And this time around America will get it right."
The first ad outlined the same theme and was titled "Right for America," Examiner.com reports.
A TMR spokesman said the company would release a new ad every week through the 2016 election, Examiner.com reports.
