From the makers of Attack Watch: The Obama campaign is mobilizing their grassroots base in Ohio to do opposition research on Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, in case Mitt Romney makes him the Republican candidate for vice president.
“Very soon, we’ll know if Mitt Romney is choosing our own Senator Rob Portman as his running mate,” Obama’s Team Ohio staff wrote in a blog post on his website. “So Ohioans have a job to do.”
What, exactly? “If and when Romney does select him, we need to be able to tell the full story about his record on Day One, which could very well be in the next few days,” the campaign explained. “Share what you think Americans need to know about Senator Portman, and why a Romney-Portman administration would be terrible for middle-class families.”
The campaign also previewed their default line of attack on Portman, saying that the Bush administration alumnus “practically invented the policies that punished middle-class families while exploding the deficit, and crashing our economy.”
