Romney has used to the report, which Chrysler has denied, to counter Democrats attributing the effectiveness of the 2008 and 2009 auto bailouts to Obama.
The president’s campaign has hit back hard on the suggestion Chrysler is moving Jeep production to China, arguing that the former Massachusetts governor is lying to win swing voters in Ohio, whom polls show he is struggling to connect with.
Chrysler said Thursday that two of its Jeep models had record sales months in October. Sales of the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Patriot were up 14 and 18 percent, the company said.
