The Mitt Romney campaign has released their first general election television ad which will be aired in multiple swing/battleground states and the campaign will be putting $1.3 million behind it's message.
Those states include Virginia, Ohio, Iowa and North Carolina.
The ad focuses on three key issues, approving the Keystone Pipeline, introducing pro-growth tax reforms and replacing Obamacare with common sense solutions.

ABC News describes the ad:
The spot begins with a voice-over asking, “What would a Romney Presidency be like?” as text reading “Day 1″ flashes on the screen.
“President Romney immediately approves the Keystone pipeline, creating thousands of jobs that Obama blocked,” the voice-over says.
“President Romney introduces tax cuts and reforms that reward job creators, not punish them,” the voice-over says as video of Romney’s speaking at various campaign events across the country plays.
“President Romney issues order to begin replacing Obamacare with commonsense health care reform.
“That’s what a Romney Presidency will be like,” the ad concludes.
Previously Romney had released a 5 page PDF which details his plans for jobs and economic growth, consistent with the video above.
When Mitt Romney says that fostering job creation through economic growth will be his top priority from his first day in office, he means it. While some elements of his plan will take time to set in motion, much can be done from a running start. On Inauguration Day, he will submit a jobs package to Congress consisting of at least five major proposals and will demand that Congress act on the package within 30 days, using every power at his disposal to ensure its passage. He will also take immediate and specific steps within his sole authority as president by issuing a series of executive orders that gets the U.S. government out of the economy’s way. The goal: restore America to the path of robust economic growth necessary to create jobs.
According to priority polling the economy and jobs are the top issues on the minds of American voters and there is nothing to suggest that will change over the next six months before the 2012 presidential election.
Andrew Malcolm at Investors Business Daily reports now that Romney has locked int he presumptive GOP nominee position, the fundraising money race between Romney/RNC and Obama/DNC has tightened up considerably.
