Today, Workers’ Voice and Patriot Majority announced a television and online ad campaign that portrays Mitt Romney as “an economic traitor,” specifically targeting how workers at Sensata were forced by Romeny’s Bain Capital to take down the American flag as they were simultaneously forced to train their Chinese replacements.

The TV ad will run in Pittsburgh in order to to hit western Ohio part of market. It will also be running outside Pennsylvania in both Youngstown and Green Bay.
“Mitt Romney is an economic traitor who desecrated the flag while decimating jobs,” said Workers’ Voice Communications Director Eddie Vale. “It’s bad enough that Romney & Bain destroy American jobs and send them to China. But to make American workers take down our flag while training their Chinese replacements is something only an economic traitor would do.”
The ad features Sensata worker Tom Gaulrapp, who asks if “we’re supposed to be ashamed that we’re Americans?”
Online video pre-roll and display ads will run state-wide in Ohio and Wisconsin to target rural voters. Facebook ads will make up 10% of the online ads, and there will be “search ads” on both Google and Bing.
