Obama campaign targets Portman - Politico

The Obama campaign has sent out a series of emails to supporters, asking for impressions of potential GOP nominees from voters in their home states.

On Sen. Rob Portman, the campaign emails Ohio supporters:

Rob Portman has been our senator for two years now, but the most damning pieces of his record involve choices he made as a senior member of the Bush-Cheney administration and conservative congressman, the consequences of which still reverberate on a national scale. As one of the architects of the top-down Bush budget, Portman practically invented the policies that punished middle-class families while exploding the deficit, and crashing our economy.

On Tim Pawlenty, the Minnesota campaign writes:

Both Romney and Pawlenty left their states worse than they found them.

And on Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), the campaign writes:

You see, we know Marco Rubio -- all the way from his time in the Florida House of Representatives to his election to the U.S. Senate. But most Americans don't know him -- or the extreme, tried-and-failed policies he'd bring with him to a Romney administration. As Floridians, it's our job to share what we know about Marco Rubio with the rest of Americans.

It's a sign that the Obama campaign is preparing grassroots pushback against whoever Romney picks as a runningmate.
