Strickland Campaign Statement on Portman-Trump Meeting

COLUMBUS, OH — Following Senator Portman’s meeting with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in Washington, D.C. today, Strickland for Senate spokeswoman Liz Margolis issued the following statement:

“Senator Portman's face-to-face meeting with Donald Trump is another reminder that Portman has pledged his devotion to the most toxic presidential nominee in modern history -- a desperate move that is turning off moderate Republicans, alienating independents and energizing Democrats across Ohio. The last three things that Senator Portman wants in the spotlight are his unabashed record of supporting job-killing trade policies, his belief that Trump should reshape the Supreme Court for generations and his status as the ultimate Washington insider -- but with Trump at the top of the ticket, these debilitating weaknesses for Portman will be front and center.”
