Another Romney TV ad will go into the campaign's rotation in Iowa and New Hampshire starting tomorrow. It will also begin airing in South Carolina within the next couple of weeks. This one is called "Energy" and again shows Romney running. An announcer talks about Romney's leadership in turning around businesses and the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. At the end of the ad, he sits gazing at his wife and grandchild, by their side, with sweat dripping from his brow, hair tussled and breathing hard. 

Here's the full transcript:

"Energy" (30 seconds): 
ANN ROMNEY:  "Every place that Mitt has gone, he has solved problems that people said were nearly impossible."
 
ANNOUNCER:  "Mitt Romney, the innovator who created and revolutionized American businesses turned around major companies.
 
"Took on the bankrupt Olympics and turned them around.
 
"The Republican Governor who stood up and cut spending instead of raising taxes.
 
"And turned around our most Democratic state.
 
"Leadership to turn around Washington."
 
ROMNEY:  "I'm Mitt Romney and I approved this message."
