According to CNN: "The spot, released Monday and directed by noted filmmaker Rob Reiner, will air nationally and in the battleground states of Colorado and Virginia, the group said, adding it would air during shows primarily viewed by women."

I heard something new twice today that I hadn't heard when making calls at my local OFA field office. Two different women told me that they lived in a house divided. They were voting for President Obama, but their husbands were voting for Mitt Romney. Women get it. Romney and the GOP want to take women back in time. We can't let that happen. The ad is airing in Colorado where once again there is a personhood amendment on the ballot again. It's just another version of the personhood amendment that failed in 2008 and 2010 by 40 points. The ad will also be airing in Virginia, where an ultrasound law was signed by Gov. Bob McDonnell, who lost his chance to be Mitt Romney's running mate when he became known nationally as Governor Ultrasound. Just because the ad isn't airing in your state, doesn't stop you from sharing it via email and social media like Facebook and Twitter!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
