United Steelworkers put out this tv ad yesterday which captures some of the heartbreak and devastation that shipping jobs overseas causes in small town America. A longer, more detailed version of this ad can be seen here, Romney's Bain Selling Out American Workers to China.

Mary Jo Kerr is a young mom of three. She's one of hundreds of workers whose jobs at an auto sensor plant in Freeport, Ill., are being shipped to China because of Mitt Romney's Bain Capital. Before you vote, please watch and share her story.

Last night Mary Jo told her story and that of Sensata to Ed Shultz.
