DNC to follow Romney in Ohio

Democrats will be hitting the road to follow Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign bus tour in Ohio next week.

On Saturday, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced that they will join Romney in the swing state on their own bus tour. The DNC bus will make stops in Lima, Dayton, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Toledo and attack Romney over his “47 percent” comments made at a private fundraiser earlier this year.

Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) will be on the DNC bus, along with Brad Woodhouse, the DNC communications director.

“Who is Mitt Romney talking about when says 47 percent of Americans don't take responsibility for their lives and want to be dependent on government?” The DNC said in a statement announcing their bus tour. “Did he mean seniors who worked their whole lives and now live on a fixed income? Was he talking about servicemen and women and veterans who have fought for our country? Maybe he meant students who are working to build a better future for themselves? Or was it people who have fallen on hard times and are looking for work? These are the people Mitt Romney says are looking for a hand out.”
