COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Framing the vote on Super Tuesday, the Obama-allied super PAC Priorities USA Action is out with a memo, more or less treating Mitt Romney as the nominee. The document goes through the usual litany of Romney attacks, from the verbal gaffes to the conservative policy prescriptions.
But the memo also touches on a line that seems likely to be used throughout the general election campaign, should Romney, as expected, end up the nominee.
"Romney’s agenda for the wealthy is measurably hurting him with those who are not," it reads.
This has been the attack on Romney that Democrats have hammered home after exit polling has surfaced following every primary contest. And the notion that Romney's political fortunes are being buoyed mainly by the upper class -- while likely to be decried as "class warfare" by conservatives -- was also the line that several Ohio Democratic operatives stressed in interviews with The Huffington Post on Monday.
