Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney's campaign purchased a second week of ads on Monday, according to a Republican media tracking source.
Team Romney bought $1,026,000 of time in the battleground states of Ohio and Iowa for spots that will begin airing for a week on Wednesday. The commercials are set to run on broadcast stations in the key Ohio markets of Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Dayton, as well as Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport and Sioux City in Iowa.

President Barack Obama will make several stops in Iowa on Thursday.
The Romney campaign went on the air with its first general election ad Friday backed by a $1.25 million buy in Ohio and Iowa. The same commercial will also air in Virginia and North Carolina through Tuesday.
It is not yet clear whether the Romney campaign will introduce a new ad or if it will air the same spot currently running in the four states. That ad, titled "Day One," lays out some of the actions Romney would take during his first day in the White House, if he wins in November.
Meanwhile, the Obama campaign is in the midst of a more than $24 million ad campaign in nine states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
