Fact-checking the new pro-Mitt Romney ad

The GOP presidential primary campaign may still be in mid-season, but at least one campaign TV ad is already in reruns. Restore our Future, a pro-Mitt Romney super PAC, is slated to air a commercial in Georgia beginning Thursday that, save for a few visuals, is identical to one that ran during the former Massachusetts governor’s failed 2008 presidential campaign.   It’s also similar to a viral Internet story that PolitiFact National checked Jan. 30. Both television ads feature former business partner Robert Gay crediting Romney with helping reunite Gay with his daughter after she went missing. "Mitt’s done a lot of things that people say are nearly impossible," Gay says in both ads. "But for me, the most important thing he’s ever done is to help save my daughter." Did Mitt "help save" Gay’s daughter?
