President Obama campaigns in the Triangle today. He will visit WestStar Precision, owned by Ervin Portman, Democratic Wake County Commissioner. Commissioner Portman’s business is reportedly doing well, and that’s great news. Entrepreneurs should be admired, not demonized. I’m looking forward to hearing Commissioner Portman discuss his Apex and Costa Rican operations, the value to his customers of having the plant outside the U.S., and why free trade, not protectionism, is good for Americans.
