New York, Jan.17 (ANI): Hours before a Republican presidential debate in South Carolina, Rick Santorum's campaign released an attack ad that suggests Mitt Romney is "just like Obama" - in part by citing his past positions on social issues.
"Obama supported the Wall Street bailouts - So did Romney," a narrator intones ominously, as images of the two men appear onscreen.
"Obama gave us radical Obamacare - that was based on Romneycare. Obama's a liberal on social issues. Romney once bragged he's even more liberal than Ted Kennedy on social issues."
According to CBS News, the spot concludes with the narrator asking: "Why would we ever vote for someone who is just like Obama? When we can unite around Rick Santorum. And beat Obama."
The campaign said the ad would begin airing Wednesday in South Carolina ahead of the state's January 21 primary.
The spot is the first negative ad from Santorum in the state; the campaign did not disclose how much it is spending to air it. (ANI)
