NEW YORK (AP) - An independent group backing Republican Mitt Romney has placed a $4.3 million advertising buy in nine presidential battleground states.
Restore Our Future announced Wednesday that it has bought television ad time in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia and New Hampshire.
The group is run by former Romney aides and was by far the biggest advertiser during the Republican presidential primary. It spent more than $53 million on ads attacking Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich after each one emerged at different points as Romney's chief conservative rival.
The group's latest ad, "Saved," also ran during the primary season. It describes how Romney led efforts to find the 14-year old daughter of a former colleague at the Bain Capital private equity firm after she disappeared in New York.
