Romney cancels March 31 Milwaukee fundraiser to do political events, starts TV ad

Mitt Romney has canceled a planned fundraiser March 31 in Milwaukee.

Ted Kanavas, Romney’s state chair, said the former guv plans to instead do political events in Wisconsin that weekend in advance of the April 3 primary. The schedule was still being worked out, he said.

Meanwhile, Romney's campaign says he's running a TV ad in Wisconsin that touts his conservative record and efforts to balance the budget while Massachusetts governor without raising taxes.

The spot opens with Romney saying he'd spent his career in the private sector and faced a $3 billion deficit when he became guv. Some suggested raising taxes or borrowing money to fix the shortfall.

But he says he cut spending, balanced the budget every year and left office with a $2 billion rainy day fund.

As he speaks, the ad cuts to shots of Romney on the campaign trail as various headlines flash across the screen, the last one proclaiming "Boldest GOP Agenda Since Reagan '80."

“The principles of business work in government, and it’s high time to bring those principles of fiscal responsibility to Washington, D.C.,” Romney says to close the ad.
