Cory Booker: Bain Attacks ‘Nauseating’

Newark Mayor and Obama surrogate Cory Booker critiqued that campaign’s efforts to attack Mitt Romney’s career at the private equity firm he founded. “This kind of stuff is nauseating to me on both sides,” Booker said in an appearance on Meet the Press Sunday morning. “It’s nauseating to the American public. Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity. Stop attacking Jeremiah Wright. This stuff has got to stop.” Booker went on to call the mediasphere squabbling a “distraction from the real issues,” saying that Obama’s reelection effort can instead be about “the issues the American public cares about.”
