An independent group supporting Republican Mitt Romney is launching an $11 million advertising push in general election swing states criticizing President Barack Obama's economic stimulus plan.

American Crossroads announced Tuesday it would run the ad in eight states - Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia. Polls show Obama leading Romney in nearly all those states.

The $757 billion stimulus plan was enacted in 2009 with almost no Republican support. The ad points out that the nation's unemployment rate went up after the plan was enacted, not down as Obama promised.

A companion group, Crossroads GPS, launched a $4 million ad campaign supporting Republican Senate candidates. The groups are tied to President George W. Bush longtime political director Karl Rove.
