Mitt Romney’s campaign is up with a new ad buy in North Carolina, Ohio, Iowa, and Virginia beginning tomorrow for its second ad of the general election.
The size of the buy has a longer flight than the $1.3 million he spent to air his first ad, “Day One,” over the past week, according to a media buying source.
Romney’s campaign has been engaged in an all-out counter-attack on the Obama campaign’s ads dealing with Romney’s record at Bain Capital, though it is unclear whether the new spot will engage on the issue. Romney’s campaign hinted at the ad in a tweet earlier Wednesday, but officials declined to comment on what it will focus on.
