On Wednesday, GOP super PAC Restore Our Future launched a $1.2-million ad buy focusing on the national unemployment rate. The PAC points to the Obama administration for the loss in job growth.
The ad claims the real unemployment rate is around 19 percent when those who have stopped looking for work are included; the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the national unemployment rate at 8.1 percent as of August.
This is the first presidential campaign ad in Michigan since August. Neither of the presidential campaigns has released ads here since February.
