Portman to Romney-Ryan faithful in Boston: 'Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose'

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman addressed the nervous Romney-Ryan crowd in Boston by video shortly after Fox News called key swing states of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania for Obama.

Portman, who played Obama in debate practice, said he had "never been prouder to be part of any campaign as this one." He urged the crowd to remember the Friday Night Lights motto adopted by the campaign: "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose."

GOP senior strategist Ed Gillespie also reassured the faithful in Boston: “We are very optimistic and confident about where our votes are as they’re coming in, feeling very good.
