AFP Takes Aim at Obama With New Ad in Florida
On Wednesday, Americans for Prosperity (AFP), a conservative political group that pushes for free market solutions, released a new ad attacking President Barack Obama in several key states including Florida. The group is pouring more than $1 million into Florida to keep the ad on the airwaves for 10 days starting on Wednesday.

“President Obama’s statement that the private sector is ‘doing fine,’ is a slap in the face to the countless Floridians who are unemployed, underwater on their house, and struggling to put food on the table,” said Slade O’Brien, the Florida director of the AFP. “Federal tax increases and massive regulations by agencies such as the over-zealous EPA have stunted our private sector. I welcome the president to come to Florida and see how ‘fine’ our economy really is.
“Florida and America needs a leader that will provide real solutions, real jobs, and real growth," added O’Brien. “It’s time President Obama support economic policies that decrease the federal government’s role in our everyday lives.”
AFP also served notice that they will be running another ad in Florida--this time targeting Democrat incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson who is seeking a third term in November.
