Sen. Rob Portman and the Ohio Republican Party hosted two receptions tonight, to which reporters were invited on one condition… that they not report anything they gathered there.
Portman, by the way, has once again been picked for a key bit of role-playing. He’s expected to be President Obama’s surrogate as Mitt Romney practices for the upcoming debates. He did the same thing in 2004 when he playedÂ Al Gore and he also wasÂ Obama four years ago for JohnÂ McCain.
