(CNN) – Americans for Prosperity, an independent conservative organization is poised to launch an ad in response to the Supreme Court's health care ruling backed by its biggest ad buy to date, $8.2 million.
The spots will run in the presidential battleground states of Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, according to two sources with the group.

AFP readied three different ads to unveil depending on the ruling. They did not want to wait a few days to release their message. The sources said they believe any discussion of health care reform hurts President Barack Obama because of the divisive nature of the issue.
The group has consistently released spots throughout this election cycle. Previous ads have criticized the president over energy, taxes and the size of the federal deficit.
"Americans for Prosperity is deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision to uphold a law that most Americans believed to be unconstitutional. As a result, unless Congress steps in and repeals this legislation, health care costs for most Americans will go up and the quality of health care goes down as Washington politicians ramp up yet another massive new bureaucracy," the group said in a statement. "The Court got it wrong, and now Congress must step in."
