Anti-Obama ad by Pivot Point targets black voters VIDEO

Pivot Point Washington Super PAC is making waves by running anti-Obama ads on BET television in Cleveland and Seattle.

Pivot Point is not the only miniature super PAC to pop up this election cycle….

Pivot Point, however, seems to be the only super PAC supporting President Obama or Mitt Romney at the state level; other presidential super PACs are national.

“I can’t think of another one that’s been formed at the state level in the presidential race, although it’s not really surprising, and I expect we’ll see more of this as the race goes on,” said Anthony Corrado, a professor of government at Colby College in Maine and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who is an expert on campaign finance.

“In this new era of super PACs,” Corrado added, “you’re no longer dependent on party decisions on spending.” Groups like Pivot Point can spend money wherever they see fit.
