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.
The spot hits Romney as a "career politician," a jab Romney also made against Perry through a new website.
CareerPolitician.com, created by Team Romney, attacks Perry for having "no experience in the real world economy" as well as his support of in-state tuition for illegal immigrants and the restructuring of entitlement programs like Social Security.
"Whether deflecting attention from his own record through personal attacks, utter fabrications, or intentional distortions, it's hard to know how much lower Perry will go," Romney Communications Director Gail Gitcho said in a statement. "We are introducing CareerPolitician.com to help voters learn about the real Rick Perry and the lengths to which he will say or do anything to get elected."
