Portman running to succeed Voinovich
« on: January 12, 2009, 03:37:25 PM »

Okay, this is what we have to do now, concentrate upon the future.

Former Republican congressman Rob Portman will announce that he is running for the Senate soon after Ohio Sen. George Voinovich’s retirement announcement, according to multiple Republican sources.

Portman's official announcement is expected to take place on Wednesday.

Portman would give Senate Republicans an accomplished candidate who is likely to clear the primary field.

“He’s great on both policy and politics, and you don’t often find that combination,” said Hamilton County Republican party chairman Alex Triantafilou. “His experience in government, his experience in Washington and his understanding of Ohio would make him a tremendous force in the Senate.”.....

I wrote Voinovich a letter on the Senate Immigration Bill fiasco from a couple of years ago.

Never heard a peep.

I guess he was out golfing or being entertained by yet another lobbyist.

Good riddance.

George, you are a RINO and a disgrace to conservatism. Don't go away mad, just go away.
