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

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."

"Under Lee Fisher Ohio has lost nearly 400,000 jobs."

"On (Rob Portman's) watch as Bush's trade czar, our deficit with China exploded" and "as Bush's budget chief, Portman oversaw a spending spree that doubled the deficit."

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."

"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."
