WASHINGTON —

A super political action committee supporting President Barack Obama is running the first television advertisement using Republican Mitt Romney's words from a closed-door fundraiser.

The ad from Priorities USA Action shows clips of Romney telling wealthy donors that 47 percent of Americans "believe that they are victims." Romney goes on to say he'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility.

The ad closes with a narrator saying Romney will never convince middle-class voters he's on their side.

The liberal magazine Mother Jones published the Romney video clips Monday.

The ad is part of a $30 million project by Priorities that focuses on how it believes Romney's proposals would hurt the middle class. The ad will run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin.
