Romney v. Obama

From NBC/NJ's Erin McPike
On the same day that the Romney campaign is set to release a positive ad -- the closing message in Iowa -- the team is also starting to engage Obama, given the senator's Romney-heavy remarks on the stump yesterday.

These are campaigns that are supposed to be singularly focused on the primaries in Iowa right now, so what might this be saying about internal tracking data? Romney's camp also just released a document, taking Obama to task on taxes.

*** UPDATE *** Here's the ad:

NBC's Domenico Montanaro adds that this positive ad, running in Iowa, comes after Romney released negative ones on Huckabee and McCain, his chief rivals in Iowa and New Hampshire, respectively.

In the ad, he touts his accomplishments in "helping turn around business, the Olympics, and state government."
