This morning, Mitt Romney visited Janesville. Sunday, a Democrats' bus tour stopped in Madison, in advance of the Republican presidential candidate.
Members of the Democratic National Committee are tracing the route of Romney's bus tour to highlight how they say the Republican candidate's economic policies would hurt the middle class. DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse says that issue is key to winning battleground states like Wisconsin: “This election's going to come down to who has the best plan for the middle class. It's a choice. They (Romney's campaign) want this to be referendum on the president. It's not. It's a choice on who has best plan for moving forward with middle class.”
Also on the bus was a teacher from Massachusetts, along with a lawmaker. Massachusetts State Rep. Kathi Anne Reinstein claims Romney has “distorted” his record on jobs: “During his term the state (Massachusetts) dropped to 47th out of 50 in job creation. Manufacturing jobs were lost at twice the national rate.”
Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is on a six state bus tour which started in New Hampshire.
