Gov. McDonnell Calls Obama Ads Against Romney Dishonest

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says President Barack Obama’s ads accusing Republican Mitt Romney of outsourcing jobs while a venture capitalist at Bain Capital are dishonest.

McDonnell said Friday the Obama campaign should take down those ads making the claim.

McDonnell and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker spoke in Williamsburg before the National Governors Association convened for its annual summer meeting. Walker concurred with McDonnell on the ads. Both have been mentioned as potential Romney running mates.

McDonnell said the Obama ads are not relevant because they stem from a time after Romney left as Bain Capital’s director in 1999 to head the Salt Lake City Olympics.

Obama is scheduled to campaign in Virginia over the next two days.
