Dem Video Ties Mitt Romney To Steve King

Seizing on Mitt Romney’s endorsement of Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a new Democratic National Committee video aims to label the Republican nominee and the ultraconservative lawmaker “partners in extremism.”

The video, circulated on Saturday, highlights clips of King’s controversial comments on rape, immigration and President Obama’s birthplace, alongside Romney’s remark that “I want him as my partner in Washington, D.C.”
