Planned Parenthood is planning a foray in to the presidential race by buying advertising in battleground states aimed at Mitt Romney over his abortion stance. In the meantime, an anti-abortion group is raising money in response to last week's Democratic National Convention.
The Hill: Planned Parenthood Hits Romney With Record-Breaking Ad Buy
Planned Parenthood's political arm will hit Mitt Romney over abortion with new ads in Virginia and Ohio, the group announced Monday. The ad buy, worth $3.2 million, comes as part of the largest-ever campaign effort for Planned Parenthood Votes. The group has already invested $1.4 million on ads in Iowa, Florida and Virginia. A narrator says that Romney would "turn back the clock for women" in the new 30-second spot, which began airing Monday in Virginia (Viebeck, 9/10).
