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.

(Photo of Obama….Graphic quoting the McCain campaign as quoted in the Daily News on October 5: "If we keep talking about the economy we’re going to lose.”)

NARRATOR: Now as Americans lose their jobs and savings…

NARRATOR: …McCain’s resorting to smears and false attacks.

NARRATOR: Barack Obama launched his first campaign here, not in anyone’s living room.
