Ad Race Heating Up During Olympics (Watch Video)

Restore Our Future is doing everything it can to help Romney bring home the gold in November.

The conservative super PAC launched a new Pro-Romney ad Tuesday to air during the Olympic Games. The spot, airing in Pennsylvania, as well as in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin, is part of a $7.2 million ad campaign.

This campaign is the first major GOP super PAC activity since super PACs significantly reduced their Pennsylvanian presence, preferring the Great Lake regions. Restore Our Future, along with Crossroads GPS, were are off the air altogether.

Not surprisingly, the ad focuses on the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and features Olympic athletes Kristi Yamaguchi, Fraser Bullock, Jimmy Shea and Derek Parra.

The thirty second spot compliments Romney’s leadership during the Games.

“He [Romney] faced a $400 million budget deficit and turned that around to a $100 million surplus,” said Bullock.

“Mitt gets things done; he changed my life,” said Parra.

The spot will run through August 9.

Romney isn’t the only candidate using Olympics air time. Team Obama launched their own positive ad for the opening ceremony.

That same day, pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action showcased an attack video, criticizing Romney for his business record.

Restore Our Future’s ad will run through August 9.

  1. Right…They’re all liars. Yamaguchi especially. Give me a break. This ad cuts to the bone. What we’re witnessing in sue’s comment are the death throes of an Obama drone.

  2. I was so pleasantly surprised to see this ad today. It was so nice to see such sincere appreciation for Romney and his work. My kids liked it too!

  3. he is lying about his olympics role just like he has lied about everything else. it was a festival of porkbarrel spending and government subsidies that benefited his mormaon pals and his bain businesses.
