Senator Portman to play Obama in Romney debate prep

Republican Mitt Romney has chosen Senator Rob Portman of Ohio to play the role of President Barack Obama in debate preparations.

Romney and Obama are to take each other on in three presidential debates this fall.

Romney has already began his debate preparations but when he takes part in a mock debate, Portman will stand in as Obama to represent the Democrat's views, according to campaign officials.

Portman played Obama in 2008 in debate prep for that year's Republican candidate, Senator John McCain.

Portman was also on Romney's vice presidential running mate short list before he chose Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan.
