The “super-PAC” aiding Mitt Romney, Restore Our Future, is making a push into Pennsylvania, a state that has been considered strong for President Obama.
On Monday the group put down about $2 million for a slate of television commercials through next Monday, the day before the presidential election.
The move prompted the Obama campaign to shift advertising resources there for the first time since July. It announced on Monday that it too would being airing commercials in the state.
The Restore Our Future purchase includes about $1.2 million in the voter-rich Philadelphia media market where Republicans believe they can make inroads with a number of different demographics, including Jewish voters who may be open the arguments put forward by the Romney campaign that Mr. Obama has not been supportive enough of Israel.
