Newark Mayor Cory Booker said it on NBC's Meet The Press: He doesn't think it's fair to attack Mitt Romney over Bain Capital and he credited Bain Capital with growing businesses. He said attacks on private equity must stop.
As far as that stuff, I have to say from a very personal level, I’m not about to sit here and indict private equity. It’s—to me, we’re just getting to a ridiculous point in America. Especially, I know, I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people are investing in companies like Bain Capital. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, they’ve done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses; this to me, I’m very uncomfortable.
