During a televised Senate debate in Ohio last night, Republican Mike DeWine was asked about his attendance record on the Senate Intelligence Committee. He was also asked if he would authorize the chairman and vice-chairman to release his attendance record. Watch as he stumbles around and never really answers the question:

DeWine of course falls into the typical right-wing response of "attack the opponent", which also backfired. He talked about the times Sherrod Brown missed votes, which turned out to be mainly during Brown's recovery from a broken back and while tending to a family illness.
