Dems' Friday the 13th Message: Romney Policies Scary for Nevada

RENO, NV - Nevada Democrats didn't let Friday the 13th pass without a reference to the presidential campaign. Their message: Romney's policies should scare Nevadans.

At a morning press conference, state party communications chief Zach Hudson and former Washoe County Chairman Chris Wicker said a Romney presidency would be a "nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue" and should frighten Nevada's middle class.

They cited the GOP candidate's statements on corporate personhood, student loans and especially his record at Bain Capital which allegedly included driving companies into bankruptcy while raiding their reserves and outsourcing American jobs.

Romney has said much of that happened after he left the firm in 1999, but recent press reports indicate he was still in charge of the venture capital firm as late as 2002.

"When you look at the bad things Bain Capital did, he's saying 'oh no, that wasn't me. I wasn't in charge then' even though the documents filed say he was in charge then," says Wicker.

A spokesman for the Romney campaign said late today the president was "relying on false attacks' to distract from his own failed record, adding "Nevadans deserve a president they can trust, not someone who resorts to dishonest and totally unsubstantiated attacks."
