ad shows Romney, Ryan stepping on middle class


“Mr. Chairman, fellow members of the 1 percent, we thank you for your loyal and generous support and we accept your nomination for President and Vice President of the 1 percent,” the ad concludes.

The ad will run in Florida throughout the Republican National Convention, which is taking place this week in Tampa.

Democrats have tried to portray Romney as out of touch on account of his upbringing and wealth, and as a corporate raider for his time heading the private-equity firm he founded, Bain Capital.
