Obama Campaign Responds to Romney Jeep Ad Called Misleading

Updated on

President Barack Obama’s campaign said it will air an Ohio television ad that rebuts what outside observers call a false impression left by Republican challenger Mitt Romney about Chrysler Group LLC moving Jeep production to China.

As images of cars being crushed are shown in a recent 30-second Romney campaign commercial, a narrator says Obama “sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American job.” It began airing this weekend and had appeared 15 times on Toledo stations and 14 times in Youngstown by yesterday morning, according to Kantar Media’s CMAG, a New York-based political ad tracker.
