URBANDALE, Iowa (CNN) - A group supporting Mike Huckabee that has made calls in early primary states attacking rivals Mitt Romney and John McCain is back, this time with a television ad in Iowa that goes after Romney for flip-flopping on abortion.
In the spot by Common Sense Issues, a laugh track is played over a mix of older footage of Romney in which he says he’s pro-choice, and newer clips in which he says he’s pro-life. It ends with the line, “On the most fundamental issue, shouldn’t we trust a man who’s always been consistent?”
The Huckabee camp has publicly distanced itself from Common Sense Issues, saying their negative message harms the former Arkansas governor's positive campaign. But a spokesman for the group tells CNN, “We wouldn’t be marshaling the forces and raising the money if we didn’t think it would help him.”
