The Mitt Romney campaign is responding to Freeport's "Bainport" tent community.

Dozens of Sensata workers whose jobs are being outsourced to China are protesting across the street from the factory, camping out in a tent community they're calling "Bainport". Protesters say they will be living in "Bainport" until Mitt Romney comes to discuss the outsourcing of jobs in America.

"Governor Romney has not worked at Bain Capital for over a decade, but for four years President Obama has been presiding over an economy that is creating too few jobs and sending more jobs overseas. Despite the President being invested in Sensata through his personal pension fund, and the government owning a major Sensata customer in GM, President Obama has not used his powers to help this situation in any way."— Curt Cashour, Romney Campaign Spokesman
