Both sides of Obamacare debate launch ad campaigns

(CNN) - Dueling ads over Obamacare will hit the airwaves this week, as a conservative group raises questions about the rollout of the president's sweeping health care reform, while a group on the other end of the political spectrum unveils a new TV spot seeking to defend the comprehensive program.

The conservative group Americans for Prosperity is the latest organization to launch a major ad campaign attacking Obamacare, a spokesman has confirmed to CNN. The ad buy is expected to eventually total $1 million and run nationally, with an initial rollout of $700,000 worth of television and online ads that will air in Virginia and Ohio beginning Tuesday.

In fight against NRA, Manchin says he’s not afraid

(CNN) - Sen. Joe Manchin is firing back after the National Rifle Association targeted the conservative Democrat in a television commercial last week.

The senator from West Virginia said Thursday morning the NRA is using "paranoia" to keep lawmakers from making big moves on gun control, following the Newtown elementary school shooting in December that left 20 children and six adults dead.

The Romney video that never was–starring Donald Trump

Updated 9:15 p.m., Friday, 6/14

(CNN) - Real-estate mogul Donald Trump said Friday night that Mitt Romney's team asked him to appear in a "commercial" for the campaign last year–but it never saw the light of day.

The video, he said, was supposed to run during the Republican National Convention and featured Trump sitting in his office with an actor who looked like President Obama. After telling the faux president "what a lousy job" he's done, Trump said, he delivered his famous line to the actor: "You're fired!"
