Romney ad uses Hillary Clinton criticism of Obama

Associated Press SHARE

NEW YORK (AP) — Mitt Romney's campaign has launched a new attack ad against President Barack Obama that uses Hillary Rodham Clinton's words against the president.

The Romney ad is running in Ohio and several other battleground states. It's a response to a commercial run by the Obama campaign suggesting that the Republican presidential hopeful's longtime private equity firm has sent jobs overseas

The Romney ad calls the allegations false and says Obama used unfounded attacks on Clinton when the two vied for the Democratic nomination in 2008.

The ad includes a clip of Clinton saying "Shame on you, Barack Obama," after direct mail pieces his campaign sent out in Ohio suggested that she supported the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Clinton now serves as Obama's secretary of state.
