The RNC is capitalizing on comments from Newark Mayor Cory Booker by sending out a fundraising email and creating an "I Stand With Cory" petition, asking signers not to let "The Obama Campaign Silence Support for Job Creation." Booker created a small firestorm Sunday when he said on "Meet the Press" that he's "uncomfortable" with the Obama campaign's ads going after Bain Capital for laying off workers -- comments he tried to smooth over in a video Sunday evening.
The petition reads:
Yesterday New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker, a surrogate spokesman for the Obama campaign called the president's attacks on the free market "ridiculous". That's right Mr. President, we aren't going to let you destroy free enterprise. Stand up for America. Stand up for job creators.
