Checking pro-Romney group's new campaign ad
You’ve heard the bashing. Now see the commercial.
On Wednesday, Pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future was slated to unveil ads in Georgia arguing that rival Newt Gingrich is too risky a pick for GOP presidential nominee. Primary day is March 6.
We’ve seen it, and it has all the hallmarks of your typical attack ad. Unflattering images, menacing music, and dire claims.
Claims that PolitiFact National and other fact-checking outlets happen to have vetted.
We gave a Pants on Fire to a claim that Newt Gingrich "co-sponsored a bill with Nancy Pelosi that would have given $60 million a year to a U.N. program supporting China’s brutal one-child policy."
We also looked into whether Gingrich teamed up with the liberal California congresswoman and House minority leader Nancy Pelosi on global warning.
The new ad also claims that when Gingrich was U.S. House speaker, earmarks ballooned. Other fact checkers have written about this claim. You can find their rulings here.
Stay tuned to PolitiFact Georgia for more fact checks in the lead up to Super Tuesday.
