(CNN) – Mitt Romney's presidential campaign Friday released a new television commercial that says a Romney presidency would signal "that our country is back on the right track."
The spot, titled "A Better Day," is the third general election ad put out by the Romney campaign, following two "Day One" commercials that outlined what Romney would do, if elected president, on his first day in the White House.

In this new spot, the narrator outlines what would be different about a Romney presidency, saying "from day one, President Romney focuses on the economy and the deficit, unleashes America’s energy resources, and stands up to China on trade. President Romney’s leadership puts jobs first."
The narrator goes on to say that "there's something more than legislation or new policy. It’s the feeling we’ll have that our country’s back, back on the right track. That’s what will be different about a Romney presidency."
While positive in nature, the spot does criticize President Barack Obama by insinuating that the current president is not focusing on the economy or the deficit, and is preventing the unleashing of domestic energy resources.
The Romney campaign also announced they were releasing a Spanish language version of the new commercial. CNN has reached out to the Romney campaign regarding where the new spot will run and how much money the campaign will spend to run the ad, but has yet to hear back from officials.
According to data provided to their clients by Kantar Media/Campaign Media Analysis Group, which tracks political ad spending, the English language version of the spot began running Friday morning on TV markets in Iowa, Ohio, North Carolina, and Virginia.
On Tuesday CNN reported that Romney's campaign bought one week's worth of TV ad time for $2 million, marking its largest seven-day commercial time buy since it began its general election campaign, according to a Republican ad buying source.
The new buy brings the total for general election advertising for the Romney campaign to $5.25 million.
For spots that began Wednesday, the campaign purchased $317,205 in Iowa, $550,570 in North Carolina, $810,640 in Ohio and $377,325 in Virginia - all considered key battleground states that both campaigns will heavily contest in the general election. These are the same four states the Romney campaign has been advertising in for the past two weeks. The new buys run through next Tuesday.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee's ad buys come as the Obama re-election campaign is airing just over $25 million worth of commercials in eight battleground states, which include the same four where Romney is on the air plus Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada. Team Obama’s ads went up May 9 and will run through next Monday.
