Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, went up with the two ads this morning – both of them hitting President Barack Obama on coal. The two ads titled "War on Coal" and "Way of Life" include shots of Romney on a stage with soot-covered coal miners.
The footage is from Romney’s Aug. 14 campaign stop at the Century Mine in Beallsville, Ohio, owned by a subsidiary of Murray Energy Corp. It was later learned that the miners on stage were ordered out of the mine because of Romney’s campaign stop and were not paid for the portion of their shift that was canceled by the event.
