AVON LAKE — U.S. Sen. Rob Portman stopped at Romney headquarters at Learwood Square this morning, saying that presidential candidate Mitt Romney was calling on his supporters to get energized.
Portman arrived aboard a Romney-Ryan bus that said “More jobs, more take-home pay.”
About 60 supporters and media members turned out.
Portman joked about the crowd of 12,000 that turned out Thursday night in Defiance to see Romney, saying “one reason, Meatloaf was there, as well as Mitt Romney.”
Portman said the campaign was working hard to convince Ohio voters that the auto industry would be stronger under Romney.
Portman said the auto bailout did not treat all manufacturers equally, saying “I believe there were problems with the way Barack Obama did it because there were winners and losers.”
Portmans said the last portion of the campaign will be critical, an he predicted victory on Nov. 6.
“On Nov. 7, we’re going to get working,” he said. “We need a guy like Mitt Romney who believes America is broken — it needs big changes.”
