Portman Endorses Trump

Ohio Senator Rob Portman endorsed Donald Trump months ago, but he’s been pretty muted in his support. That changed on Thursday.

At a speech to the Ohio delegation breakfast at the Republican National Convention, Portman offered more full-throated support for Trump, and used his name more often than speakers at the rest of the week’s  breakfasts combined.

He says Republicans know how to fix the economy as evidenced by what’s happened in Ohio.

“That’s what needs to be done in Washington D.C. with the new president of the United States named Donald Trump and his vice president, Mike Pence, and with a Republican Senate that can work with them to restore that American Dream.”

Governor John Kasich has refused to endorse Trump, and was absent from the convention floor.
