(CNN) - Mitt Romney released two new campaign ads on Wednesday in which coal workers say the Republican presidential nominee would be better for their industry - and their families' economic futures - than President Barack Obama.
"Obama's ruining the coal industry," one miner says.
"The policies that the current administration's got is attacking my livelihood," says another.
The miners say they are concerned about their children's and grandchildren's futures because "they're wanting to close these mines down."
In the spots, Romney is shown speaking to the miners.
"We have 250 years of coal, why wouldn't we use it?" he asks. "Utility bills are up. People wonder how they're going to have a brighter future if they can't see how they can make it to the end of the next month."
The campaign did not say where the spots will run, nor how much money it is spending on the ad buys.
On Wednesday, Romney will be in Miami attending a candidates' forum and a campaign rally.
