Schultz: Romney's record at Bain Capital is 'fair game' for Obama campaign

According to recent polling, President Obama is holding a narrow edge over presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in three key battleground states.

A new NBC News/Marist survey shows Ohio voters choosing the president over Romney 48% to 42%. In Virginia and Florida, Obama's lead is narrower: 48% to 44%.

On Starting Point this morning, DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz discusses these figures and responds to the Starting Point panelists' inquiries about the president's fundraising efforts and his record on immigration and the auto bailout.

Rep. Schultz also defends the Obama campaign's recent political ads, which criticize Romney's record at Bain Capital.

"Romney has made his record at Bain Capital and his experience in the private sector the central premise to American voters that they should elect him president," Schultz says. "As a result, it's entirely fair game to have a close examination of exactly how he's executed practices" at the company.
