Statements from the Ohio: 2010 U.S. Senate's race

"Under Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher, Ohio is 44th in the country in terms of getting money actually into worker retraining."

"If you want to see the jobs that I've saved and created in this storm he helped create, go anywhere in Ohio."

Says he's so bipartisan that "12 of my bills were signed into law by Democratic President Bill Clinton."

Since the stimulus package was passed, "Ohio’s lost over 100,000 more jobs."

Says Lee Fisher "wanted a $1.1 billion tax increase which could have driven countless jobs out of state."

On Lee Fisher’s watch, "almost nine out of 10" jobs that Ohio lost were lost to other states, "not to other countries."

Says a "Pro-Stimulus economist admits it is not working … "

"More than half of our unemployed Ohioans have been out of work for six months or more."

Rob Portman is "the one who actually sucked the jobs out of the (Mahoning) Valley and sent them to China."

Rob Portman has taken more than $125,000 from "Big Oil."

A bill to cap carbon emissions "could cost Ohio 100,000 jobs."

"As President George W. Bush’s trade representative, Portman failed to address China’s currency manipulation, which was inflated to as much as 40 percent in 2006."

Since the Democrats’ stimulus went into effect last year, Ohio has lost about 150,000 Jobs.

Rob Portman’s "plan to tax, slash and privatize" Social Security "would devastate Ohioans."

Says that Lee Fisher once said, "I never met a gun control bill I didn’t like."
