On MSNBC Friday, Rendell, a Democrat, said he thought that the Obama campaign "may be hurting the president's brand a little bit" with its attacks on Mitt Romney over the issue of when he severed his connection to the private equity firm Bain Capital.
"I think our supporters went a bit too far with the felony business," Rendell said.
He was referring to comments by Obama's deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, that Romney may have committed a felony by signing filings with the FEC that indicated he was the CEO of Bain for nearly three years after he said he left the company, in 1999.
