WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's campaign plans to air advertising in Michigan beginning Wednesday touting the president's support of the auto industry, responding to Republican ads criticizing the president.
Obama campaign officials say the ad comes in response to a $2 million ad buy by a Republican super PAC supporting Mitt Romney, Restore Our Future.
Obama won Michigan handily in 2008 and the state has not been among the battleground states heavily contested by both campaigns.
Obama officials have said they will not take anything for granted and match Republicans in advertising.
Republicans say the moves show Romney momentum and a sign that he is putting Obama on the defensive in traditionally Democratic states like Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
