Romney Deflects Question About Planned Attack Ad

When asked about the report that a Super PAC is planning to runs ads about President Obama's relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Mitt Romney told Townhall that it was the Obama campaign that was engaging in "character assassination."

Said Romney: "I would like to see this campaign focus on the economy, on getting people back to work, on seeing rising incomes and growing prosperity... And I think what we've seen so far from the Obama campaign is a campaign of character assassination. I hope that isn't the course of this campaign."

Maggie Haberman: "Obama's campaign's attacks have been about Bain Capital, which has been a key element of his curriculum vitae that he cites as qualifying him for the job."
