TAMPA, Fla. — Mitt Romney's presidential campaign is challenging criticism from U.S. automakers over campaign ads that claim General Motors and Chrysler are adding jobs in China at the expense of Ohio.
Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said Wednesday, quote: "Their comments don't refute anything in our ad." Romney ads on TV and radio repeat a version of a claim Romney made in a campaign speech last week: that Chrysler is moving Jeep production to China.
The ads are airing in Toledo, where the auto industry employs thousands.
On Tuesday, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne emailed employees to restate that, quote, "Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China." General Motors, mentioned in a Romney radio ad, released a statement calling the campaign "some parallel universe."
