View the ad by clicking here.
The commercial script and sources are listed below.
We’ve got a great vision for Pennsylvania.
We want it to be the best place for businesses to come and invest.
For you to come and work.
I don’t want to grow government.
I want to grow industry.
You can see where once struggling businesses now have new life.
178,000 new private sector jobs just in the last three years. 
We had a vision of a future in which the Keystone State was the best place to invest, the best place to work.

We didn’t just save jobs here in Pennsylvania, we opened up new opportunities for growth and for development.
(On-screen text: PA Now #1 in the entire northeast US for building new facilities. )
That is part of what we’re doing, is bringing people back to Pennsylvania.
(On-screen text: Corbett's Policies Spur Economic Resurgence. PA Manufacturers' Association. )
I want to pass to the next generation a Commonwealth that is debt-free.
That is better than we found it.
That’s the vision.
(On-screen text: PA has seen surge in natural gas employment. )
I didn’t come to Harrisburg to make friends, I came to build a stronger Pennsylvania.
And we’re not done yet.

Drawing a sharp contrast between Governor Christie’s bipartisan accomplishments and effective leadership with the gridlock and dysfunction of Trenton before his arrival, the Christie for Governor campaign today announced its 6th television ad of the General Election entitled “Bipartisan.”
When Governor Christie took office, irresponsibility and mismanagement in Trenton had left New Jersey at the brink of fiscal disaster. Governor Christie has taken the state in a starkly different direction and shown what strong leadership can accomplish, even with the reality of divided government.
In the 30-second ad, the Governor speaks directly and personally about his bipartisan approach to governing and the landmark accomplishments it has produced for the people of New Jersey.
“I stand up strongly for principles and I speak bluntly and directly, and I say what I believe. But I also know that my job is to get things done for the people of the state,” Governor Christie says in the ad. “Every accomplishment we’ve had in New Jersey – cutting taxes, cutting spending, improving education, tenure reform, pension and benefit reform. Everything we’ve done has been a bipartisan accomplishment. It’s my job to make sure that that compromise happens. You see, as long as you stick to your principles compromise isn’t a dirty word.”
By providing the leadership needed to find the common ground between getting everything you want and sacrificing firmly-held principles, Governor Christie delivered results for New Jerseyans that has defied the conventional wisdom of what divided government is capable of.

This ad was prepared by the Republican National Committee to air in the final weeks of the 2012 presidential campaign.
Apparently the Romney campaign objected to the ad because they felt it would distract from the "main" issue that they were intent on pursuing -- the economy. So, the ad never aired.

Former Clinton Adviser Lanny Davis: “Bill Burton Needs To Go Back To Ethics School. … The Ad Is Misleading And Disgusting…” “Bill Burton needs to go back to ethics school. … He knows perfectly well that the ad is misleading and disgusting and he needs to apologize for it.” (Steve Portnoy, “‘Disgusting’ Pro-Obama Ad Criticized By Democrat,” ABC News’ The Note, 8/9/12)
CNN’s Erin Burnett: “Just Plain Wrong.” BURNETT: “Blaming Mitt Romney personally for her death is just plain wrong.” (CNN’s “Out Front,” 8/9/12)
Chicago Tribune: “What A Vicious, Shameful Ad. … A Disgrace.” “What a vicious, shameful ad. … Mr. President, lift the campaign. Call this ad what it is: a disgrace.” (Editorial, “Scraping Bottom,” Chicago Tribune, 8/9/12)
The Wall Street Journal: “Smear…” “A postmodern postscript: The Obama campaign was at first more than happy to slipstream behind the Priorities USA smear, refusing to disavow the cancer ad and deflecting questions by claiming not to "know the specifics" (Robert Gibbs) or "know the facts" (deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter).” (Editorial, “The Postmodern President,” The Wall Street Journal, 8/9/12)
The Washington Post’s Nia-Malika Henderson And David Nakamura: “Widely Skewered As Over-The-Top And Irresponsible…” “The anti-Romney ad released this week by Priorities USA has been widely skewered as over-the-top and irresponsible, condemned for insinuating that Mitt Romney is to blame for the death of a woman whose husband lost his job and health insurance after Bain Capital bought his steel mill.” (Nia-Malika Henderson and David Nakamura, “Obama, Romney campaigns Run Provocative Ads To Draw Attention In Crowded Media Landscape,” The Washington Post, 8/9/12)
CBS News’ Brian Montopoli: “Nasty … Unfair … Not True.” “The story is certainly affecting, and it fits into the Obama camp's narrative that Romney doesn't care about working people. There's just one big problem: It's not true. … And the Obama campaign's refusal to disavow the spot speaks to just how nasty the campaign has already gotten - a full three months before Election Day.” (Brian Montopoli, “Due Diligence: An Unfair Attack On Mitt Romney,” CBS News, 8/9/12)
The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard: “It’s Extremely Offensive.” STODDARD: “The implication is that Mitt Romney is responsible for her death, and it’s extremely offensive.” (Fox News’ “Special Report,” 8/9/12)

The Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer: “Almost Beyond Comprehension.” KRAUTHAMMER: “Look, this is plain language. The guy is saying that he doesn't realize what he has done to anyone. He’s talking about the woman. To link Romney to her death is almost beyond comprehension.” (Fox News’ “Special Report,” 8/9/12)
“When President Obama’s campaign claimed they didn’t ‘have any knowledge of the story’ in the disgraceful Obama Super PAC ad, they weren’t just forgetting the facts – they were deliberately misleading voters. For months, the Obama campaign has repeatedly featured these distortions in their own advertisements and campaign activity. If voters can’t trust the Obama campaign to tell the truth about something so obvious, how can they trust anything they say?” – Ryan Williams, Romney Campaign Spokesman
This Week, President Obama’s Campaign Claimed They Didn’t “Have Any Knowledge Of The Story” In A Disgraceful Obama Super PAC Ad:
Obama Campaign Spokesperson Jen Psaki: “We Don’t Have Any Knowledge Of The Story…” PSAKI: “We have nothing - no involvement with any ads that are done by Priorities USA. … We don’t have any knowledge of the story of the family. As you know, campaign finance rules in that regard are in place for a reason.” (Adam Aigner-Treworgy, “White House, Obama Campaign Distance Themselves From Super PAC Ad,” CNN’s White House Blog, 8/8/12)
But President Obama’s Campaign Has Repeatedly Featured The Exact Story On Their Own Website, In A Campaign Ad, And On A Conference Call:
The Obama Campaign’s Own Website Highlights The Same Story Featured In The Controversial Super PAC Ad:
(Obama For America Website, www.barackobama.com, Accessed 8/9/12)
In May, Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter Hosted A Campaign Conference Call That Featured The Same Story As The Super PAC Ad. “But as my colleague Reid Epstein reported yesterday, Soptic appearead in an Obama campaign ad in May, and Cutter hosted an Obama campaign conference call around that time in which Soptic told reporters the same story as the one featured in the Priorities USA ad.” (Dylan Byers, “'Morning Joe' Slams Obama Camp For 'Scam',” Politico, 8/9/12)
In May, President Obama’s Campaign Released An Ad That Featured The Same Person From The Super PAC Ad. “Missouri steelworker Joe Soptic starred in an Obama campaign ad and participated in a conference call with the campaign in May, as POLITICO reported Wednesday. He resurfaced this week in a Priorities USA Action super PAC ad, charging that his wife died of cancer after Mitt Romney's former private equity firm laid him off.” (Byron Tau, “Obama Camp Acknowledges Knowing Man's Story,” Politico, 8/9/12)
