MAUMEE, OH (Toledo News Now) - A "flash mob" of President Obama supporters broke out into song at the grand opening of Mitt Romney's Maumee, OH campaign office Wednesday.
The group sang a song they created, calling Mitt Romney a liar and criticizing his position on the auto bailout, his work at Bain Capital and what they called ‘flip-flops'. Flash mob participants were later escorted off the property by Maumee Police.
"We didn't cause a raucous, we weren't here for any disrespectful reasons. This is America. We have a right to be heard as well. We want them to know that what their candidate is doing is wrong, and he's telling lies instead of just telling the truth," said Stephanie Ribby, one of the protestors.
The campaign office opened with just 90 days to go before Election Day.
All eyes could fall on Ohio on November 6, as no Republican has ever won the White House without carrying Ohio.
"For a Republican to win the Presidency, you've got to win Ohio. And especially in northwest and north central Ohio. This is where you've really got to concentrate a lot of your time because that's where a lot of the votes are," said Bob Latta, who represents Ohio's 5th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.
The importance of Ohio has fueled speculation that Romney will choose Ohio Senator Rob Portman as his running mate and candidate for Vice President of the United States. Latta says Portman's work in the U.S. House and Senate and as Trade Representative and later Budget Director under President George W. Bush more than qualifies him to be Vice President.
"You're talking about an individual who not only has legislative experience, budgetary experience, trade experience, he's got a great portfolio and plus, he's a great guy. So he would, I think he would add wonderful things to the ticket. We're all kind of keeping our fingers crossed out here that Rob will be on the ticket with Mitt Romney," said Latta.
The Romney campaign has given no indication of when a vice presidential candidate choice might be announced, but Romney is scheduled to appear with Portman at a campaign event in Ohio on August 14.
