Mayor Villaraigosa: Madison Ave. ad people trying to remake Romney-Ryan

Joining CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien live at the CNN Grill in Tampa during the RNC convention, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa compares Romney-Ryan ticket to President Obama campaign and record.

Mayor Villaraigosa says, “I think there’s an effort to bring in Madison Avenue type ad people to remake Governor Romney and Mr. Ryan, and we want to set the record straight. I think it’s important for people to remember what they said during the primary season, what he’s done when he was in business, what he’s done as governor. They talk a lot about job creation, and we know that he was 47th out of 50th, put more debt on the people per capita of Massachusetts during this time as governor than anybody else in the country.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
