Our last post previewed tomorrow’s roll-out of Ohio Women for Mitt, an effort aimed at shoring up the candidate’s flagging support among Ohio’s female voters.
But here’s an interesting fact: one of Romney’s co-chairs, Longaberger Company CEO Tamala (“Tami”) Longaberger didn’t vote for Romney when she had the chance.
According to voter history data from the Muskingum County Board of Elections, Longaberger consistently votes in general elections — showing up at the polls every November dating back to 2005. And she votes in important primary elections, casting a ballot in the 2006, 2008 and 2010 GOP primaries.
But, when given the opportunity to vote for Mitt Romney on March 6, 2012, Tami Longaberger took a pass.
That’s probably not the person you want standing with you when you’re encouraging others to show up to vote for you.
