(CNN) – Barack Obama’s campaign has released another negative local ad that accuses John McCain of failing to protect American jobs. “In tough times, who’ll help Michigan’s auto industry?” asks the announcer in the 30-second spot. “Barack Obama favors loan guarantees to help Detroit re-tool and revitalize.
“But John McCain refused to support loan guarantees for the auto industry. Now he’s just paying lip service, not talking straight. And McCain voted repeatedly for tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, selling out American workers. We just can’t afford more of the same”
'Revitalize' is the latest Obama ad to hit McCain on jobs. The campaign ran radio and television ads that said the presumptive Republican nominee and his campaign manager Rick Davis were partly responsible for the potential loss of thousands of Ohio jobs, timed to coincide with his trip to the area where shipping giant DHL may make those cuts.
They also released a spot that charged the Arizona senator with failing to protect U.S. motorcycle manufacturing jobs, that hit the airwaves as he visited York, Pennsylvania, home of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle factory.
