(CNN) – With just four days to go until Election Day, Republican-leaning super PAC American Crossroads and its affiliate Crossroads GPS announced a pair of ads Friday hitting President Barack Obama for the national debt and for lacking a good case for a second term.
CNN reported Tuesday that major Republican-leaning groups would spend almost $50 million in the final week before the election on ads, including $28 million in ad time from American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS.

The American Crossroads spot will hit all of the swings states in a $4.5 million national ad buy while the Crossroads GPS buy will total $1.4 million airing on local broadcast in Minnesota – a state thought to lean Democratic but recently Republicans have made a late campaign advertising push there.
In the Minnesota spot titled, "Actually Debt," a man points to a line projection on a graph.
"Know what this line is?" he asks. "It's the debt we'll owe at the end of Obama's second term: $20 trillion."
The narrator breaks down the share of the U.S. debt to $65,000 for each American and says Obama has added more to the deficit than the last 41 presidents combined.
"This line is middle-class income, down more than $4,000 since Obama become president," he says pointing to another graph. "More debt to pay for; Lower incomes for us; We can't afford more of that."
A recent poll from the Minnesota's Star Tribune showed Obama up three points over Republican nominee Mitt Romney among likely voters in the state, suggesting a close race in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Forty-seven percent of respondents said they would back the president and 44% said they support Romney. Obama's advantage is within the survey's sampling error.
An earlier poll of Minnesota voters showed Obama with a wider lead, up eight points over Romney. The St. Cloud State University survey, showed Obama at 53% support to Romney's 45%. Obama's advantage in the SCSU survey is also within the poll's five point sampling error.
The national ad titled "Debate," released Tuesday and aimed at women voters, features a woman watching a clip of the president on her hand-held tablet.
"Mr. President, I was hoping to hear you had a new plan but all I heard was keep spending," says the woman in the ad, questioning why another four years under President Obama would be better than his first term.
