Today, Mitt Romney makes a brief pit stop in Portland to extract some cash - without bothering to actually meet any actual voters, or even distract the press from his fundraiser by reading a book to some kids or visiting a factory floor.
Meanwhile, the Oregon AFL-CIO has invited all of us to greet Governor Romney in true Portland style.
Let's welcome Mitt Romney to Oregon - tomorrow at 11:30am in front of the Governor Hotel in downtown Portland. #WelcometoOR— Oregon AFL-CIO (@ORStrongVoice) June 4, 2012
We'll see if Portland lives up to its "Little Beirut" moniker. The Governor, by the way, is at 614 Southwest 11th Avenue.
Oh, and if you're talking about this on Twitter, use the hashtag #WelcomeToOR.
