Holland, OH event part of Romney's "We Build This" campaign

HOLLAND, OH (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - People across America will be holding "We Build This" events on Wednesday.

It's aimed at allowing small business owners the opportunity to respond to a claim the Romney campaign says President Obama made. The Romney campaign quotes Obama as saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build it. Somebody else made that happen."
