“Mitt Romney: We Must Defend The Rights Of Military Voters”

Press release:

Mitt Romney today made the following statement on early voting privileges for military servicemen and women in Ohio:

“President Obama’s lawsuit claiming it is unconstitutional for Ohio to allow servicemen and women early voting privileges during the state’s early voting period is an outrage. The brave men and women of our military make tremendous sacrifices to protect and defend our freedoms, and we should do everything we can to protect their fundamental right to vote. I stand with the fifteen military groups that are defending the rights of military voters, and if I’m entrusted to be the commander-in-chief, I’ll work to protect the voting rights of our military, not undermine them.”

My earlier coverage is here and here.  Note the relief sought in the Obama campaign complaint is all about getting early voting extended for all Ohio voters, and nothing about taking away early voting rights of military voters:
