WASHINGTON (AP) -- A pro-Republican group says it's spending $8 million on new TV ads attacking President Barack Obama for sustained unemployment and calling on him to cut the national debt.
Crossroads GPS is launching the ads on the heels of recent government figures showing the economy added only 80,000 jobs in June.
Crossroads GPS, the nonprofit arm of the American Crossroads super political action committee, criticizes "three years of crushing unemployment." The national unemployment rate is currently at 8.2 percent. Unemployment has been above 8 percent for most of Obama's term.
The ads will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
