Mitt Romney Ad: Take One For The Team


Mitt Romney Ad: Take One For The Team

One of Rick Santorum’s biggest stumbles in last week’s debate? Saying he voted for No Child Left Behind to “take one for the team.”

Now Mitt Romney is using the words in a tough new ad.

The ad focuses on Title X spending — some of which funds Planned Parenthood — another issue on which Santorum got lost in the weeds of Senate procedure.

“I have a personal more objection to it, even though I don’t support it, that I voted for bills that included it,” Santorum is quoted as saying.

“Rick does this a lot,” the narrator ads, and then cuts to his defense of his vote on education reform: “It was against the principles I believed, but you know, when you’re part of the team, sometimes you take one for the team.”

The ad concludes: “Rick Santorum: Just another Washington insider.”
