Obama Campaign Ad Defends Solyndra Record

Obama Campaign Ad Defends Solyndra Record

The 2012 campaign of President Barack Obama kicked off with the release of a television ad on Jan. 19, a campaign official told Fox News.

According to the news outlet, the official said ads will air in Ohio, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina and Wisconsin. The President won all of these States in the 2008 election.

Fox News reported that the first ad seeks to defend Obama’s record on energy against criticism from a Republican-leaning outside group, showing that the campaign is heating up despite the lack of a chosen challenger from the Republican Party.

The ad responds to a $6 million television campaign by a group backed by the billionaire Koch brothers that accuses Obama of using pay-for-play politics in dealing with the bankruptcy of Solyndra, which filed for bankruptcy despite receiving a $528 million Federal loan guarantee, according to the news outlet.

The Los Angeles Times reported that “Americans for Prosperity,” the group that accused Obama, fired back at the President, saying that he was “attack[ing] a grassroots group…in an attempt to divert attention and shrug off blame.”
