Washington, DC -- A new 30-second television ad, released today by the new group Ultraviolet, urges the Republican Presidential frontrunner, Mitt Romney, to stand up to Rush Limbaugh and stand up for women.
As the GOP continues their war on women, the ad, which will air on cable in DC, is a spoof of an online dating site matching Mitt Romney and Rush Limbaugh after other prominent conservatives from George Will to John McCain distanced themselves.

The ad is being released by Ultraviolet, a new community of women and men, fighting to expand women's rights and combat sexism everywhere - from politics and government to media and pop culture.
Last week, Ultraviolet collected more than 170,000 signatures on a petition urging Limbaugh’s advertisers to drop their support of the show.
“By refusing to fully condemn Rush Limbaugh’s hate speech, Mitt Romney is sending a message to the girls and women of America that if they speak out, they should expect to be attacked and called awful names. That’s unacceptable.” said Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of Ultraviolet.
“Time and time again Romney has tried to duck questions about Limbaugh’s offensive comments. It is far past time for Romney to stand up to Rush and stand for women. Our ad will remind women everywhere where Romney really stands,” added co-founder, Shaunna Thomas
UltraViolet is an online community of more than 300,000 women and men who want to take collective action to expose and fight sexism in the public sector, private sector and the media.
