Restore Our Future (Pro-Romney) Launching Pennsylvania Ad Campaign

This is the SuperPAC of ex-Romney staffers so they’d be as close to reflecting Romney campaign sentiments as any organizations and they are clearly seeing something in the Keystone State:

Mitt Romney’s super PAC, Restore our Future, is launching an 11th-hour ad blitz in Pennsylvania, POLITICO has learned. ROF is going up Tuesday with a $2.1 million ad buy across every Pennsylvania market, including pricey Philadelphia. The group will air a spot, “New Normal,” that lashes President Obama on the economy and is already up in other parts of the country.

The late push for Pennsylvania comes as some internal GOP polling has shown the always-elusive Keystone State to be within a few points. But other public polling, including a survey released over the weekend by the Philadelphia Inquirer, shows Obama enjoying a lead outside the margin.  Romney’s campaign is not airing ads in Pennsylvania and the candidate himself has not been to the state recently.  Paul Ryan recently held a rally at a hangar outside Pittsburgh, but that was partly intended for Ohio consumption. But with Romney closing the gap nationally with Obama, money has been flooding into the GOP super PACs. The conservative group Americans for Job Security went up with a TV buy in Philadelphia over the weekend. So groups like ROF have a bit more of a luxury to try to broaden the political map.

    I imagine they will be doing this in quite a few states. Wasn’t that his strategy in the primaries: last-minute blitzes.

      I believe it’s the Battleground projection model that TWS says is showing the Romney 52-47 – but I am unable to find a link. TWS writeup didn’t have one.

    This was their best tested ad. It’s what flipped VA to Romney earlier in the month.
