(THE HILL) — Mitt Romney is releasing a pair of television ads Monday, renewing his attack on President Obama’s economic record and outlining his own plan “for a stronger middle class,” which has become a cornerstone of his campaign stops and appearances.

The first ad, a positive spot, features Romney speaking directly to the camera and outlining the five tenets of his economic plan: including trade reform, a balanced budget, cutting the deficit, reducing spending and aiding small businesses.

“We put those in place, we’ll add 12 million new jobs in four years,” Romney says as over footage of machinery at work and a woman putting up an “open” sign outside a small business.
