Obama Ad Hits McCain On Jobs In Ohio

A new Barack Obama ad in Ohio is taking aim at John McCain for his involvement in a deal by foreign-based shipping company DHL that threatens thousands of jobs in Ohio. "In Washington, John McCain helped pave the way for foreign-owned DHL to take over an American shipping company. McCain's campaign manager was lead lobbyist for the deal. Now, thousands of Ohio jobs at risk," the ad states. Watch it:

The McCain campaign responded to the ad with a FactCheck.org analysis of similar ads run by the Obama campaign and labor groups in Ohio. "We can't judge people's motives, but we've seen no evidence to suggest that McCain's activities were directed at helping DHL do anything at all. And certainly we've seen nothing to suggest that McCain 'turned his back on' Wilmington's workers," the analysis states.
