Veep watch: Rob Portman to face heat on steel 

Politico excerpt 

Democrats, however, say the political climate is much different this election year than in 2010, when a Republican wave helped sweep Portman into the Senate. And they’re trying to revive the steel issue just as President Barack Obama and Romney jostle over who’s been tougher on China and who’s the bigger outsourcer. The December 2005 decision also could figure prominently in swing states with proud steel-producing traditions, such as Pennsylvania, Indiana and Portman’s home state of Ohio.
