President Obama will attend fundraisers today in Baltimore and Philadelphia. According to POLITICO, the President's six events today are expected to bring in at least $3.6 million for his campaign.
Today, Obama for America released a new television ad titled "Number One" that attacks Mitt Romney's economic record as Governor of Massachusetts. "Number One" will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
The Romney campaign offered this response to the new ad: “President Obama has overseen trillion-dollar deficits, soaring national debt and the first credit downgrade in history. Mitt Romney, on the other hand, closed a $3 billion budget shortfall, balanced four budgets, left a $2 billion rainy day fund and received a credit rating upgrade. President Obama will do anything to distract from his abysmal economic record and – despite that record – the fact that he thinks the private sector is ‘doing fine.'”
