Democrats are ramping up their criticism of Republicans by tying them to Wall Street, launching a “coordinated attack” combining national and state party resources, as well as interest groups.

Building off the Obama administration’s criticism of banks — including President Barack Obama’s shot at Bank of America’s decision to impose a $5 fee on checking account customers — they will stress the importance of a strong Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and try to tap into the publicity given to the Occupy Wall Street protests.

Additionally, the Democratic National Committee is releasing a new web video titled “Republicans: On the side of Wall Street, Not Consumers.”

From POLITICO’s Morning Score:

SNEAK PEEK – COORDINATED DEM ATTACK WILL TIE REPUBLICANS TO WALL STREET : The Democratic Party, state parties, outside groups and the Obama campaign plan to dramatically step up criticisms of Republican presidential candidates for their vows to repeal Wall Street reform and on Senate Republicans who are blocking the president’s choice to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Up to a dozen state parties will offer public support today for Richard Cordray, Obama’s nominee to head the bureau. The organizations will partner with consumer advocates, including current and former state attorneys general, and link Cordray’s confirmation with consumer protection, credit card company abuses and predatory lending. Watch for statements, letters, calls, press conferences and conference calls and social media efforts. The following states are likely to be involved: OH, CO, NM, AZ, IA, ME, NH, PA, MA, NV and WI.
