New $12.6m barrage by American Crossroads slams Obamanomics in seven states. One new ad features Clint ’empty chair’ Eastwood.


WASHINGTON – In the final stretch of the presidential campaign, American Crossroads today launched three new television ads across seven states pounding President Obama on his failure to turn the economy around.  All told, the new buy totals $12.6m – the group’s largest one week buy to date – and airs in seven swing states for one week.


The first ad, “At Stake,” features writer-actor-director-producer Clint Eastwood telling voters: “In the last few years, America has been knocked down… We need someone who can turn it around fast, and that man is Mitt Romney. There’s not much time left, and the future of our country is at stake.” The Eastwood ad runs in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia. View the ad here:

The third ad, “Survive,” features business owners critiquing Obama’s failures on the economic and regulatory front. The ad, which runs in Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, and Virginia,  can be viewed here:


“President Obama failed to turn the economy around over the last four years, hasn’t proposed anything new for the next four years, and we need to hold him accountable by electing a new president,” said Steven Law, President and CEO of American Crossroads. “America is facing the slowest economic recovery in modern history, and our president hasn’t proposed to do anything different to turn it around.”
