'Dirty Jobs' host Mike Rowe to appear Wednesday with Mitt Romney at Bedford Heights event

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Politics can be a muddy business. Enter "Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe. The Discovery Channel personality and Ford Motor Co. pitchman will offer his support Wednesday to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a public event in Bedford Heights. Romney's campaign announced the Rowe endorsement late Monday when confirming Romney's Cleveland-area itinerary for the final day of a two-day bus tour through battleground Ohio. Rowe made headlines this month for an open letter he wrote to Romney, seeking a "national conversation" on skilled labor and "about what we value in the workforce." Rowe opened the letter by pledging to vote for Romney if he read the whole thing. A campaign aide later Tweeted a photo of Romney reading the letter. (Rowe closed the letter by saying he wrote to President Barack Obama four years ago but received no response.) Christopher Maloney, Romney's Ohio spokesman, said Monday evening that Rowe and Romney will meet before the 12:15 event Wednesday at American Spring Wire in Bedford Heights. Rowe is scheduled to introduce the former Massachusetts governor. The campaign is billing it as a "micro-manufacturing roundtable." Free tickets are available here. The Bedford Heights stop is sandwiched between a morning rally near Columbus, where Romney will appear with golf legend Jack Nicklaus, and an evening rally in Toledo. He will kick off his bus tour Tuesday with running mate Paul Ryan in Dayton.
