DNC hits Romney on individual mandate

(CNN) – National Democrats continued to hit Mitt Romney Friday, releasing a web video criticizing the GOP presidential candidate for changing positions on government requirements to purchase health insurance.

The video is the latest in a series of hits on Romney from the Democratic National Committee, which has focused almost exclusively on the former Massachusetts governor in the lead-up to November's general election fight against President Barack Obama.

DNC attacks Romney over women's health care

Washington (CNN) – Democrats continued to capitalize Thursday on an unforced error from Mitt Romney Wednesday when he came out against a controversial Senate amendment that would allow employers to opt out of health care coverage they disagree with on moral grounds. Romney later said he misunderstood a reporter's question and voiced support for the legislation, which is backed by leading conservatives.

The Democratic National Committee released a web video that used news reports to describe Romney's stumble and accused him of trying to take away women's control over their health care.

DNC: Romney out of touch

(CNN) - A day after Mitt Romney pulled out victories in Michigan and Arizona, the Democratic National Committee is out with a new video slamming him as out-of-touch.

The two-minute, web-only video is a compilation of Romney’s campaign gaffes and news personalities asking, in the words of CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, “whether he has trouble connecting with voters.”

Democrats zero in on Romney

Washington (CNN) – Here's an early glimpse at what Democrats plan to argue once the results come in Tuesday night: no matter what the vote totals show, Mitt Romney is the loser after the Michigan and Arizona primaries.

Democratic officials and surrogates are expected to make the case that Romney's campaign is turning off independent voters nationwide who are must-wins in the general election.

Democrats attack Romney over immigration

Mesa, Arizona (CNN) – Mitt Romney's top campaign advisers were pleased with their candidate's performance in Wednesday night's GOP presidential debate hosted by CNN and the Arizona Republican Party–and so were top Democratic Party and Obama re-election campaign officials.

During the debate, Romney defended Arizona's controversial 2010 illegal immigration law, saying, "You know, I think you see a model here in Arizona."

Democrats: Romney leaves N.H. as a 'wounded candidate'

(CNN) - Despite Mitt Romney's commanding win in New Hampshire's primary on Tuesday, national Democrats argued the Republican presidential frontrunner's 40% finish–with 95 precincts reporting–was less than a victory.

"He came out of this primary as a wounded candidate," Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Wednesday on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien."

Republican group defends Romney from Democratic 'goofy spin'

(CNN) – American Crossroads, an independent Republican group, swatted back Democratic attacks against Mitt Romney Tuesday that claim the Republican presidential frontrunner is unable to excite more than a quarter of the GOP.

"The truth? The 25% level of support we're seeing with Romney is a floor, not a ceiling," Jonathan Collegio, the group's communications director, wrote in a memo.

DNC highlights old Romney-McCain tension

(CNN) - As Arizona Sen. John McCain travels to South Carolina Thursday to show his support for Mitt Romney, national Democrats point to the duo's rivalry from the last presidential cycle.

The Democratic National Committee released a new web video showcasing McCain's 2008 attacks against Romney, many of which toe the same line the DNC now uses to paint Romney as a flip-flopper.
