(CNN) - Priorities USA Action, the primary super PAC supporting President Barack Obama, released a new television ad on Tuesday, bringing Mitt Romney's former private equity firm back into the line of fire.
In the 30-second spot, "Same Promises," five individuals talk about losing their jobs after Bain Capital bought their employers.

The group, run by former Obama White House officials, has long focused its message against Bain Capital, seeking to define Romney by his corporate background and paint him as a greedy businessman unfit for the Oval Office. Priorities spent $20 million on a series of ads delivering that same message this summer.
"This was a booming place," a man named Donnie, who has appeared in a previous Priorities ad, says in the new commercial. "And Mitt Romney and Bain Capital turned it into a junkyard."
"I was suddenly 60 years old. I had no healthcare," adds a woman identified as Loris.
"He promised us the same things he's promising the United States. And he'll give you the same thing he gave us. Nothing," a man named Pat says.
The group says the new spot will run in the battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. Priorities says it amounts to a multi-million dollar ad buy, but the group would not go into further detail.
While Bain Capital was not mentioned by name in the presidential debates, Obama charged Romney with investing in "companies that were shipping jobs overseas" during Monday night's final presidential showdown. His comment referred to Bain's role in advising companies to outsource jobs, though independent fact-checks have found that Romney had left Bain to run the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City by the time many of Bain's companies began outsourcing.
Priorities last ran an ad in September, when it attacked the GOP nominee for saying in a secretly recorded video that nearly half of Americans are "victims" who are "dependent" on the government because they don't pay federal income taxes.
Last month, the group confirmed that billionaire financier George Soros had committed $1 million to the super PAC, which has struggled to keep pace with Restore Our Future, the main super PAC backing Romney's campaign.
Romney's campaign responded Tuesday calling the ad "misleading" and "discredited."
“This is yet another misleading ad from a discredited ally of an increasingly desperate President," Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said in a statement. "Governor Romney's experience was about fixing companies that were broken and giving start-up companies a shot at success. His work helped save thousands of jobs at companies that were failing and the companies he helped start today employ over 100,000 people. Unfortunately, President Obama hasn't been able to have this same success, and 23 million Americans are suffering as a result of his failure. We can't afford four more years like the last four.”
