Republican Rob Portman is a candidate for the U.S. Senate. Senator George Voinovich (OH-R) announced he will not seek re-election. (Ohio Republicans are falling all over themselves trying to keep the seat in the GOP side of the aisle.) Portman had served in the U.S. House of Representatives and as a trade official for the administration of President George W. Bush.
Mr. Portman may seem like an average Republican, but his views are not moderate. Portman should be considered on the extreme right.
> Portman supported the privatization of Social Security. (Can you even imagine if this cockamanie idea had passed?)
> Portman thinks teachers should lead prayers in public schools. (Really.)
> Portman's other views can be read at http://www.ontheissues.org/oh/rob_portman.htm.
The fact that Portman worked with George W. Bush, should disqualify him for any further job in the government. That is only my opinion.
