The Romney campaign begins a third week of ads pressing President Obama for his comments about businesses, announcing 18 “We Did Build This” events to be held today across 12 states. The campaign signals that similar events are going to take place throughout the country, later this week.
Team Romney also releases a new video featuring Denny Sollmann, president of Sollman Electric Co reacting to the president’s remarks.
The ad opens with the president’s comments, leaving out any mention of roads or bridges.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” Solmann reacts. “He was trying to say, ‘Hey you didn’t build your business on your the government helped you build it,’ that’s what ticked me off more than anything.”
“Mr. President unfortunately you have no idea how we here in Midwestern Ohio have to try to run a small business from daylight till night,” he continues.
