Washington (CNN) - The presidential campaigns of Republicans Mitt Romney and Rick Perry launched internet jabs at each other Thursday, furthering familiar attack lines used by the two camps.
Texas Gov. Perry's team released a web video labeling Romney as a "misleading" "career politician." The minute-long spot points specifically to his comments about the health care law he passed while governor of Massachusetts and recent comments made in Tuesday's CNN presidential debate when Perry pressed him on hiring illegal immigrants in his home. Romney said he previously hired a lawn service that employed illegal aliens, unbeknownst to him.
