Mitt Romney ad hits Barack Obama over 'doing fine'

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has released a video highlighting President Barack Obama's remark that the private sector is "doing fine", ahead of back-to-back speeches in the battleground state of Ohio.

The candidates are expected to lay out their differing economic visions in a bid to win over Ohio voters - a crucial component in any path to victory in November's presidential elections.

The speeches come on the heels of weak economic data and a string of headlines that correspondents say have been damaging for Mr Obama.
