Romney campaign repudiates -- but punches back, too

Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades released this statement regarding today's New York Times article, which notes that a conservative Super PAC is considering running anti-Obama ads featuring Rev. Jeremiah Wright:

"Unlike the Obama campaign, Gov. Romney is running a campaign based on jobs and the economy, and we encourage everyone else to do the same.  President Obama's team said they would 'kill Romney,' and, just last week, David Axelrod referred to individuals opposing the president as 'contract killers.'  It's clear President Obama's team is running a campaign of character assassination.  We repudiate any efforts on our side to do so."
