Obama campaign ad hits Romney on 47%, taxes

Updated
 

The Obama campaign has released a new campaign ad that combines an attack on Mitt Romney for his “47%” comments and the Republican candidate’s refusal to release more than two years of tax returns.

After airing a portion of Romney’s secretly recorded remarks to a group of donors in which he critiques 47% of Americans who don’t pay income tax, the ad goes on to discuss his low tax rate of 14.1% last year.

“Maybe instead of attacking others on taxes, Romney should come clean on his,” the voice booms.

The TV ad is playing in Ohio, NBC News reports. The Romney-Paul Ryan ticket kicks off a bus tour in the battleground state Monday. Obama, who is leading 51% to 46% in Ohio, according to the latest University of Cincinnati poll, returns to the state on Wednesday as well.
