COLUMBUS, OH -- Several key moments defined Ted Strickland’s victory over Rob Portman in today’s U.S. Senate debate in Columbus. Strickland held Portman accountable for his record of voting against Ohio women and called out Portman for always prioritizing his wealthy contributors over Ohio’s working families. Strickland’s victory in Columbus followed another strong debate performance in Youngstown last week. In both debates, Strickland has successfully made the case against Portman: he’s the ultimate Washington insider who looks out for the wealthy and well-connected at the expense of Ohio.
Strickland and Portman will meet for their third and final debate on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Cleveland.
