Voters in several battleground states may open their newspapers and find Mitt Romney's biography this weekend.
The Ending Spending Action Fund super PAC has printed 4.5 million magazine-style newspaper inserts that will appear as advertisements in more than 150 newspapers in five states in coming days, a source with knowledge of the group's activities told CNN.

the important part of the article:
The group has endorsed Romney’s presidential bid, as well as several candidates running for the U.S. Senate: George Allen of Virginia, Ted Cruz of Texas, Deb Fischer of Nebraska, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Connie Mack of Florida, Josh Mandell of Ohio, and Richard Mourdock of Indiana. It also is backing the reelection bids of Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican, and Sen. Clarie McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri.
It backs “candidates who favor enhancing free enterprise, reducing the size of government, and balancing our nation’s budget,” according to its website.
The inserts will appear in newspapers in five key battleground states: Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Virginia, the source said.
This 12-page piece leads with Romney’s biography, from his upbringing through his marriage, business career, wife’s illness, and public service. The story emphasizes the influence upon Romney of his parents and his wife, Ann.
Here’s a laugher...suppose with the Romney bio ad comes and insert comes an Obama bio ad insert. You open IT up and inside is completely BLANK.
Calling Mother now to save insert and send to me.....hahaha....
I love the personal stories that no one ever really hears about...I wonder how much he will be helping others this way when he's President, The secret service will probably be thinking...."Finally, someone worthy of taking a bullet for."
It backs candidates who favor enhancing free enterprise, reducing the size of government, and balancing our nations budget,
And it backs- Sen. Clarie McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri.
Sorry, complete BS! Claire’s gotta go!!!!
4.5 million inserts that will be read by hundreds of people.
I found that odd as well. I guess it’s just not good for politicians to be 100% pro-life ...
We got one here in southeast Virginia
It’s supporting CLARE McCASKILL?? How STUPID of them!!
i’ll trade an Akin loss for a Romney win right now....
And I didn’t see Allen West’s name. What’s with that?
Oops, he’s not running for Senator. Mea Culpa.
I’ll pull for a sweep.
i’m all for that...
I hope it includes his amazing executive action to rescue a Bain exec’s daughter lost in NYC. Also Romney need to buy 30 minutes on Monday night and run the fantastic RNC video that no one saw - the one that ran just before Eastwood.
I got one in my county paper on Thursday. It was really well done.
Yes, it includes the rescue (full page, actually). You can see the insert on the link I provided. If your computer doesn’t have flash, since it requires one to see, just download the pdf version on the bottom of the page.
It is one of the cleverest pieces of print political advertising I have ever seen. Has several stories to hook readers who would otherwise never look at something like this (key words: "Brad and Angie", "the Kennedy's", "rescue of kidnapped little girl")
Thanks ... I was just about to see if I could hunt up a link for it! :)
This is great. I hope they can do a re-run of the same insert next week and put it in PA and some of the other “new battleground states” as well.
