Officials in Dayton are aiming to capitalize on backlash against a religious-objections law in neighboring Indiana that critics say could permit discrimination against gays and lesbians.
Romney Clarifies Position On Issue 2
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is changing his position on Issue 2, the fall referendum on Ohioâ€™s new collective bargaining law.
Earlier this week in Cincinnati, the Republican presidential candidate said he didnâ€™t have a position on limiting the bargaining power of public employee unions.
Speaking in Virginia on Wednesday, Romney clarified his stance on Issue 2.
“I’m sorry if I created any confusion in that regard. I fully support Governor Kasich and what I think is called ‘Question 2′ in Ohio. I fully support that,” Romney said.
Romneyâ€™s new position came on the same as a new independent poll saying he now trails Herman Cain in the Ohio GOP field.
