NEW YORK (AP) -- An independent group backing Republican Mitt Romney is spending nearly $4 million on ads in nine battleground states.

An organization that tracks TV spending by political campaigns says the Romney-aligned Restore Our Future has bought television ad time in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia and New Hampshire.

The pro-Romney group was by far the biggest advertiser during the Republican presidential primary, spending more than $53 million on ads attacking Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich after each one emerged at different points as Romney's chief conservative rival.

News of the Restore Our Future buy first appeared in Politico. A spokesman for the group declined to comment.

    Have any of you actually read anything, other than some email forward, about socialism? It appears that you all lack a basic understanding of socialism if you call either of these men socialists.

    I know the statement of the lesser of two evils but seriously, a socialist or a Vietnam draft dodger are our two choices?

      Both parties are socialist; do you think Romney, if elected will end social security, farm subsidies, oil subsidies......the list goes on. He won't, so you labeling only one of the major political parties as socialist is misguided. Both have their hands in the cookie jar.

          Well said. Even though Ron Paul is technically a republican, he is in fact a libertarian. It's too bad so many voters are concerned with hating the other major party that they are blind to the fact that their own party is doing the exact same thing. Both R and D have been responsible for America's downfall.

    Romney is a mormon flip flopper who will say anything to get elected. How much has the mormon church ponied up for his campaign?
