The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is out with a $1.2 million ad buy targeting Mitt Romney–a move that attempts to bolster the Obama campaign’s claim that the Rominee would be bad for women. The 30-second spot will run in Iowa, Florida, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.
It comes at a crucial time for Democrats. According to Politico, the Republican-backed Super PACs are preparing to spend $1 billion to define and then defeat President Obama and Democratic Congressional candidates. A new poll indicates that the G.O.P. may be making significant inroads, particularly among women, a group that was once solidly with President Obama. The ABC News/Washington Post poll out today shows that while Obama still leads Romney among female voters (51% to 40%), Romney is up 13 points since last month.
