Romney Hopes to Bury Obama in Ads

Maybe the GOP is trying to make voters forget another option exists? Mitt Romney and his allies are going all-out during the last few weeks of the election, spending large amounts of money on a media surge aimed at burying Obama in advertisements. Romney's super PAC, Restore Our Future, has spent $14 million on ads in nine states for the month of October, and plugs for Romney in swing states have doubled and sometimes tripled. The variety of television spots includes both anti-Obama and pro-Romney stances.
