Planned Parenthood’s political division announced plans for an additional $828,000 in anti-Romney radio advertising in the swing states of Virginia and Colorado in the final days before the election. This brings their total investment in the election to $5.7 million, with much of that cash being spent in those two states.
The new ad blitz was announced after a new USA Today/Gallup poll showed women in swing states moving toward Mitt Romney, with the two candidates now in a statistical dead heat among women in the states that could well decide the election.
The Planned Parenthood ad slams Romney for supporting a reversal of Roe v. Wade and for his plan to block federal funding of Planned Parenthood.
President Obama mentioned them favorably multiple times during the latest presidential debate.
