Ohio Senator Rob Portman, who has opened up a substantial lead over his Democratic opponent Ted Strickland, tonight withdrew his endorsement of Donald Trump.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman retracted his endorsement of Donald Trump Saturday night, the most recent incumbent senator to do so after a video surfaced of the GOP presidential nominee making lewd comments.
The list of Republican members of Congress and candidates who have retracted their endorsement of Trump has rapidly grown after a decade-old video of the billionaire nominee making derogatory comments about women was revealed by the Washington Post.
Portman’s comments struck a similar tone as those of Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Sen. John McCain of Arizona about wanting to reflect the popular will of the voters.
“I thought it was appropriate to respect the millions of voters across the country who chose Donald Trump as the Republican Party nominee,” Portman said in a statement. “While I continue to respect those who still support Donald Trump, I can no longer support him.”
The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding
A rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da
