Pat Toomey's opponent in Pa's tight 2010 US Senate race, Joe Sestak, is among the Democratic voices criticizing an ad from an Obama-supporting SuperPAC that ties business moves by Mitt Romney's former equity firm Bain Capital to a woman's death. The spot from Priorities USA Action centers on a man who lost his job and family health insurance after Bain took over his Kansas City steel mill. "I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he's done to anyone. Furthermore I do not think Mitt Romney is concerned," the former steelworker says.

From the WSJ:

"I thought the ad was wrong in terms of trying to tie a presidential candidate to a personal tragedy of a family," said former U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, a Democrat from Pennsylvania. "This ad goes over the edge."

We haven't personally seen the ad in the Pittsburgh market but it's probably running here -- Priorities USA has bought time on the city's four broadcast networks through Monday. It's showing in five battleground states. UPDATE: No it's not yet on air yet, according to Maggie Haberman at Politico.
