Super PAC debuts new ad attacking Romney's record at Bain

Super PAC Priorities USA Action is debuting a new ad today once again attacking Romney's career at Bain Capital. The ad, which is going to run in swing states as part of a ten million dollar campaign, claims that "for every company Romney drove into the ground, he average a $92 million profit."

Bain recently responded to these claims, writing in a statement to the New York Times: "Bain Capital does not make money on investments when our investors lose money. Any suggestion to the contrary is based on a misleading analysis that examines the income of a business without taking account of expenses."

On Starting Point this morning, Priorities USA senior strategist  Bill Burton discusses the campaign and responds to critics who say that attacking Romney's record is not a good strategy.
