Crossroads GPS ad continues tax debate

(CNN) – The independent Karl Rove-backed conservative group Crossroads GPS pushed back on Democrats' claim that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would raise taxes on the middle class launching ads in six battleground states Friday to counter the president's campaign ads in swing states.

The conservative group said its $5.3 million ad buy responds to the Obama campaign's criticism that Romney's tax plan hurts middle and low-income Americans. The Crossroads spot will begin airing on broadcast TV stations and cable networks Friday for one week in the swing states of Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.

Crossroads GPS bets against Obama in Nevada ad

(CNN) – Ahead of President Barack Obama's campaign trip to Las Vegas Wednesday, the private arm of the Karl Rove-backed super PAC American Crossroads released a new ad in Nevada targeting the president over the economy.

"After gambling your money on his failed stimulus, President Obama says, 'Don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas'," the ad's narrator says. "He doesn't get it. In Nevada, tourism means jobs. Under Obama, nearly 62,000 fewer Nevada jobs."

Obama campaign pressures Crossroads GPS to disclose donors

(CNN) – President Barack Obama's re-election campaign filed a complaint Tuesday, claiming a conservative group founded by Karl Rove is in violation of election law by not disclosing its donors.

In a letter to the Federal Election Commission, a lawyer for Obama's campaign argued that Crossroads GPS is a political committee–not a charitable organization–and therefore should meet disclosure requirements.
