Romney web ad features Booker, Ford

Mitt Romney's campaign released a new web video this afternoon, showing clips of Democratic Newark Mayor Cory Booker and former Democratic congressman, Harold Ford Jr., hitting Barack Obama's campaign for its Bain attacks.

Also included: former Obama "car czar", Steve Rattner, defending Bain on MSNBC.

If you remember, the latest round in the Battle over Bain was provoked by Booker's weekend comments on Meet The Press when he said:

"If you look at the totality of Bain Capital's record, they've done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses."

After Republican glee and Democratic consternation over the comments, Booker walked it back a bit in a web video that nevertheless still called for a higher tone to the campaign.

Here's the Romney web vid.
