Romney Releases New Web Ad on the Gas Hike Trio
After debuting the phrase “gas hike trio” in Illinois on Saturday and repeating it on Fox News Sunday, Governor Romney has released a new web ad with the same theme.
Mitt Romney released a new Web video Monday attacking President Obama’s Cabinet secretaries over rising gas prices, evidence that the former Massachusetts governor sees rising fuel pieces as a major political liability for the president — and that he hopes to pivot the national discourse into a one-on-one battle with the president.
The ad suggests that three top Obama officials — Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Energy Secretary Steven Chu and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson — should resign over rising energy prices.
“Three of President Obama’s top energy advisers have supported policies that make it harder for the United States to utilize our natural resources and keep energy costs low. It is clear that the ‘Gas Hike Trio’ are only interested in raising energy prices and should resign,” the Romney campaign said in a statement.
