NEW YORK (AP) - An
independent group supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt
Romney says it's launching a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign in
several general election battleground states.
People familiar with the
plans say Americans for Prosperity plans to spend about $25 million on
the ads beginning next week and running into early September. The ads
will run in Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Americans for Prosperity
was founded by David and Charles Koch (kohk), billionaire brothers who
have contributed generously to Republican causes and candidates over the
years. The group already has spent about $15 million in swing states
this year on ads attacking President Barack Obama.
