Romney slams Obama in Nevada

Mitt Romney welcomes Barack Obama to Nevada with a new web ad, hitting the president over unemployment and the state's housing woes.

Romney's campaign has coordinated a number of web ads as Obama has criss-crossed battleground states this year. In each case, Romney highlights the particular state's bleak economy and files it under the "Obama isn't working" tagline.

Also, notable: Romney himself doesn't appear in any of the series' ads, which underscores two things. 1) Romney is painting this as a referendum on Obama; not just a selection of himself and 2) The most effective prosecutors of the case against Obama are normal people, beleaguered by the economic blight.

Obama is at The Bellagio today.
