New Romney ad takes on unions, touts right-to-work bill

Mitt Romney’s (R) campaign released an ad Monday supporting the need to pass right-to-work legislation at the state level.

Romney does not appear in the ad, which focuses on Central Paper Products in Manchester, New Hampshire. President and CEO Fred Kfoury narrates the ad saying "we live in the live free or die state, and they [employees] can damn well choose whether they want to join an organization or not join an organization.”

New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch (D) vetoed right-to-work legislation in May and veto override vote is expected by the Republican controlled legislature in the Fall.

This is the fifth ad in Romney’s “Obama Isn't Working” series that started in late June.
