The 2012 ad wars have officially begun.
In what appears to be the first major media buy of the 2012 presidential campaign, an independent group supporting President Obama launched television ads in South Carolina on Friday attacking potential GOP candidate Mitt Romney over health care.
Priorities USA Action, a so-called super PAC co-founded by former White House aides Bill Burton and Sean Sweeney, is running the ad to coincide with a Romney visit to the crucial GOP primary state.

The spot also takes aim at a Romney ally, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R), who attacked presidential candidate Newt Gingrich for criticizing the Ryan plan.
