Starting this week, the Crossroads Generation super PAC will spend $50,000 on online ads aimed at under-30 Americans facing crippling debt and bleak unemployment prospects.
The new group is supported in part by American Crossroads, which has raised $100 million so far to beat Mr. Obama in November.
For his part, Mr. Obama has pushed for keeping interest rates low on student loans. That comes as some estimate student loan debt in the United States has reached $1 trillion.
Committee chief won’t interview prostitute
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee is refusing to meet with a Colombian prostitute involved in the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
Rep. Peter King tells CNN that a meeting with the woman, identified by her lawyer as Dania Londono Suarez, would merely be “a publicity stunt.”
The New York Republican’s panel is conducting its own investigation of the incident in which several Secret Service agents consorted with prostitutes in advance of President Obama’s arrival for a regional summit in Cartagena, Colombia, in April.
Asked in an interview Monday about reports the woman wants to meet with him, Mr. King replies, “There’s been enough cheap publicity.” He says, “I’m not going to give her another forum.”
Nine Secret Service agents have lost their jobs in the scandal.
