Crossroads joins tag team hitting Obama on gas prices


Crossroads GPS, the outside GOP group backed by former George W. Bush political adviser Karl Rove and others, has a new TV ad knocking President Obama on the issue of gas prices.

In what Crossroads GPS says is a $1.7 million buy, the ad is airing in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia.

And it's in direct response to an Obama campaign TV ad in these same states -- which was rebutting an earlier ad from a GOP outside group, American Energy Alliance, with ties to the conservative Koch Brothers.

Crossroads GPS, by the way, is NOT a Super PAC. It's a 501c4 organization that DOESN'T have to disclose its donors. The Super PAC which DOES have to disclose its donors is American Crossroads.
