All-star GOP cast will campaign for Portman Saturday

Get ready for the Rob Portman blitz.

Portman, who is running for re-election to the U.S. Senate, is planning a Saturday campaign event that will boast more than 700 volunteers across the state knocking on doors and making calls. The goal is to make 25,000 voter contacts on one day.

Portman himself will be meeting with volunteers in his campaign offices in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus and Cleveland. Among those who will be stumping for Portman are Reps. Brad Wenstrup, R-Cincinnati, Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green, Steve Stivers, R-Upper Arlington, and Pat Tiberi, R-Genoa Township.

Secretary of State Jon Husted, Attorney General Mike DeWine and Ohio Republican Party Chair Matt Borges will also help out.

The campaign says it has already made 528,321 voter contacts since May 1, including 201,837 doors knocked and 326,484 calls made.

Portman is being challenged by two Democrats: former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland and Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld.
