Romney private fundraiser luncheon in Toledo

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

Romney's first stop today in Northwest Ohio was this morning here in the Glass City for a private luncheon.

A crowd of protesters gathered outside the main entrance to the Toledo Club where Mitt Romney held his fundraiser luncheon. Many of them we spoke with were union workers and say if Romney was president the job situation would be worse.

"Mitt Romney has told the American people what he thinks of American workers by shipping our jobs over seas fro pennies on the dollar." Says Mathew Rockwell

"He wanted the auto industry to go bankrupt and we disagree with that decision. We're so glad that president Obama bet on us and saved the auto industry and we have a job today." Says Tammy Vanriper

The presidential hopeful is facing growing pressure to release his personal tax returns to both sides of the house.

"He definitely need to release his taxes for more than anything to just let the people know that he's an honest man." Says Rockwell

Supporters were near by hoping to at least catch a glimpse of the man they feel should lead the country. 

" You don't always get a chance to see someone of such political stature to often. I just think that the county needs to go into a different direction and I think that this guy is the one who's going to take us to that. Fight against the lies he's being portrayed as and bring out the truth of what this president is doing for our economy. " Says Charlie Pengov
