WATCH: New "SuperPAC" Gets National Attention For Anti-Romney Ad It Plans To Run In AZ

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a new, "pro-Latino" SuperPAC is airing a new anti-Romney TV ad in Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma markets.  "PAC+" has posted the new ad, slamming Romney on immigration policy, on YouTube, but has not yet filed a spending report with the Federal Election Commission ("FEC").  It uses Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to get viewers' attention.

The SuperPAC is a newcomer to the scene - having just filed an amended statement of organization earlier this week, and had $6,000 in its bank account as of March 31, 2012.  Its intent to run the TV ad for several weeks in multiple TV markets, in English and Spanish, either indicates that it has received a substantial sum of money recently, that it is overly optimistic, or that it is seeking to get free airtime and publicity.  (If you see the ad airing, please drop Arizona's Politics an e-mail or phone call.)

As noted earlier today, Brewer and Arpaio would - according to recent polling data - drag down Romney in Arizona.
