Booker Criticizes Obama Attacks on Bain Capital

Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) said on Meet the Press he was "uncomfortable" with the Obama campaign's attacks on Mitt Romney's record with Bain Capital.

Said Booker: "I'm not about to sit here and indict private equity. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital's record, they've done a lot to support businesses -- to grow businesses. And this to me, I'm very uncomfortable."

Meanwhile, The Hill reports Democrats have accepted more political donations than Republicans from executives at Bain Capital, "complicating the left's plan to attack Mitt Romney for his record at the private-equity firm."

Steve Kornacki: "Financial support from Wall Street and, more broadly speaking, the investor class has been key to Booker's rise, and remains key to his future dreams."
