Obama group airing TV ad on minimum wage hike

Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A group supporting President Barack Obama's agenda is airing a new television ad bolstering his call for an increase in the federal minimum wage.
    
Organizing for Action was formed from the remnants of Obama's re-election campaign. The group operates as a nonprofit and raised more than $26 million last year.
    
The ad shows Americans at work and touts the jobs that have been created during the economic recovery. A narrator says it's still harder than it should be to raise a family and save for retirement in the U.S. A narrator urges Congress to give America a well-deserved raise.
    
Organizing for Action isn't disclosing exactly how much it's spending on the ad but says it's more than $100,000. The ad will air on national cable TV networks.
