Gov. Deval Patrick is on the attack on the presidential campaign trail, focusing on the economic record of his predecessor, Mitt Romney.

On “Meet the Press” Sunday, Gov. Patrick denied the Boston company Bain Capital has become a key part of the president’s campaign.

"The president has never attacked Bain. It’s not about Bain, it never has been. Bain’s a fine company," Patrick said.

But Patrick said Romney’s record at the head of the firm is fair game.

"He had a terrific career creating wealth. But there’s very little evidence, either in the public or private sectors, that he had a terrific career creating jobs," said the governor.

Patrick meanwhile said President Obama’s economic record is “extraordinarily strong.” And that the economy would do better if Congress passed the president’s jobs bills.

This program aired on June 4, 2012.
