(WASHINGTON) -- Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is going on the air with a television ad in New Hampshire on Tuesday that will take direct aim at President Obama on the same day the president will visit the state to talk about his economic agenda.
Romney will preview the ad in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday night and the ad will be broadcast on New Hampshire television stations the following day.
“I want people to remember that when he was Candidate Obama, that he said he was going to get this economy going, he was going to bring people together, be a real leader for change in America” Romney said in an interview with Hannity that was taped Sunday and will air on Monday night.
“So I’m going to run an ad that shows him and the things he said here in New Hampshire in a speech here. The contrast between what he said and what he did is so stark; people will recognize we really do need to have someone new lead this country. And then I, of course, described why I’m the right person for that responsibility. So we’ll put the ad up on Tuesday, the very day he comes to New Hampshire.”
This is the first TV ad of Romney’s presidential campaign. The 60-second spot will air on ABC News’ Manchester, N.H. affiliate WMUR-TV.
