(CNN) - The initial stages of the next race for the White House won't gear up for months, but Democrats are already taking aim at one of the Republican Party's most likely presidential hopefuls.
As Senate Democrats are struggling to attract Republican support for their version of a financial reform bill, a new Democratic National Committee web video portrays former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as a longtime defender and beneficiary of Wall Street practices.
Romney does not have an official role in the current financial reform debate, but he has been one of the measure's most vocal critics among those considering a presidential bid.
The nearly 90-second video - titled "Mitt Romney: Wall Street's Best Friend" - highlights several past remarks from Romney defending Wall Street practices and chastising President Obama for comments critical of the banking industry.
