Deep pockets Mitt Romney is “on air” with another
contrast attack ad against John McCain in New Hampshire today.
ANNOUNCER: â€œMitt Romney and John McCain on immigration.
â€œMcCain championed a bill to let every illegal immigrant stay in America permanently.
â€œHe even voted to allow illegal immigrants to collect Social Security.
â€œMitt Romney said â€˜noâ€™ to driverâ€™s licenses for illegal immigrants.
â€œâ€˜Noâ€™ to tuition breaks for illegal immigrants, and he authorized his State Police to enforce federal immigration law.
â€œOn illegal immigration, thereâ€™s a big difference.â€
After McCain was read the script of the ad from a journalistâ€™s blackberry, he said he was not surprised by the new attack, the second in such days. â€œI think we expected it… We did have a response ad and I think itâ€™s effective. But for us to get down in that tit for tat — weâ€™re just not going to do that.â€
Senior strategist Charlie Black said the voters will question Romney — not McCain — over the latest round of ads. â€œThe biggest issue in the race right now is not what [McCain] says on any specific issue. Itâ€™s Romneyâ€™s credibility.â€
