(CNN) – The super PAC supporting Mitt Romney said Friday it will spend $1 million to air a radio ad in battleground states hitting President Barack Obama for his campaign's negative attacks.
The spot from pro-Romney group Restore Our Future claims Obama is resorting to negativity because his record on the economy is weak.

"Imagine you were Barack Obama. What would you do now?" an announcer in the ad asks.
She continues: "You spent a trillion taxpayer dollars on the stimulus. It failed. The jobless rate went up and has been stuck above 8 percent for 41 straight months. You increased spending so wildly that you've added more debt than the first 41 presidents – combined."
The ad cites former Democratic President Bill Clinton in praising Romney, saying the presumptive GOP nominee was "earning praise from Bill Clinton for his 'sterling business career.'"
That's a reference to an interview Clinton did with CNN's Piers Morgan in May, when he said Romney met the basic qualifications for becoming president.
"The man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold," Clinton said.
The super PAC ad released Friday goes on to claim that Obama's spate of campaign attacks are a tactic designed to disguise his poor record.
"With no record to run on, it's the only strategy Obama has left," the ad claims.
Restore Our Future said the radio ad would air statewide in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
