The Obama campaign is launching a new 30-second TV ad today to respond to the McCain attack ad hitting Sen. Barack Obama D-Ill., for his relationship with William Ayers and former Commerce Secretary William Daley.
The Obama campaign says the ad — "Lose" — will air in "key states" starting today.
The script is as follows:
NARRATOR: John McCain admits if the election is about the economy, he’s going to lose.
