Romney's second TV ad focuses on deficit and China trade

Mitt Romney is out with his second TV ad of the general election, a spot that continues the theme of what he would do on "day one" of his presidency.

Romney's first ad, released last Friday, focused on the presumptive Republican nominee's pledges to approve the Keystone pipeline, repeal President Obama's health care law and new tax cuts. His second spot includes promises of deficit reduction, tougher trade rules with China and a "repeal of job-killing regulations."

"Day one, President Romney announces deficit reductions, ending the Obama era of big government, helping secure our kids' futures," a narrator says, as images of Romney touring manufacturing companies and meeting with voters accompany footage of children playing. "That's what a Romney Presidency will be like."

Romney aides have no announced where they are airing the 30-second spot, but the campaign last week reserved more than $1 million in air time in four key swing states: Iowa, North Carolina, Virginia and Ohio.
