NEW YORK - A new player in the presidential TV advertising campaign is set to go on the air next week in competitive states, according to several media trackers.

The Republican-leaning Americans for Job Security will spend nearly $8.7 million across six states - Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia. Polls in each state indicate a close contest between President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.

The group has spent more than $5 million on ads targeting Congressional Democrats since 2010, but this is its first foray into the presidential contest.

The group is categorized as a "business league" under federal tax law and so is not required to disclose its donors.
