Portman for Senate Announces "Moving Ohio Forward" RV Tour

50 Stops Across 30 Counties and over 3,500 Miles = More Stops than Ted Strickland has Held all Year!


COLUMBUS, Ohio
– Today, the Portman for Senate campaign announced its “Moving Ohio Forward” RV Tour, which will make 50 stops across 30 counties and cover over 3,500 miles. The tour will include stops with members of our campaign's seven coalitions, union members who recently endorsed Rob, and thousands of volunteers who all agree Ohio can't afford to go back to the days of Ted Strickland's Ohio.

Rob will kick-off the RV tour during the campaign’s third Super Saturday day of grassroots action on Saturday, August 13th. During the campaign’s Super Saturday in April, more than 1,000 volunteers helped the campaign contact more than 67,000 voters in a single day. For this week’s Super Saturday, the campaign has a goal of contacting more than 100,000 voters in a single day. Both Rob and Jane will travel the state and visit with interns and volunteers as well as help with grassroots outreach.

“We have built the most advanced grassroots organization in Ohio history and are excited to launch our campaign's 'Moving Ohio Forward' RV tour - which will have more stops than Ted has made all year - to highlight the results Rob has delivered for Ohio families. We will be joined by members of our campaign's seven coalitions, union members who recently endorsed Rob, and thousands of volunteers who all agree Ohio can't afford to go back to the days of Ted Strickland when the state lost more than 350,000 jobs and ranked 48th in job creation,” Portman spokesperson Michawn Rich said. “While Ted Strickland continues to run his low-energy, 'invisible' campaign, we are proud to work with our impressive team of volunteers and interns who have helped us contact more than 3,000,000 voters since May of last year."
