Claim: As Governor, Mitt Romney Had “One of the Worst Economic Records in the Country.”

False: According to Factcheck.org, a campaign ad arguing that Romney had "one of the worst economic records in the country" as governor of Massachusetts was on the whole misleading. For example, the ad stated that Massachusetts averaged  47th in the country for job creation during his four-year tenure, disregarding that the state was ranked 50th before he took office and 28th in his final year.
