Rick Perry responds to news that Mitt Romney declined to take a position on the upcoming referenda on unions in Ohio:

"As a true conservative, I stand with Gov. Kasich in promoting S.B.5 for fiscal responsibility and job creation in Ohio," Perry said in a statement to CNN. "Gov. Kasich and the Republican leadership of Ohio are to be commended for their efforts."

Added Perry, "My record as a pro-jobs governor is clear and you don't have to wonder where I stand."

Jonathan Martin points out that Romney fully supported the Ohio law in June.
