COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Yesterday, the Portman for Senate Campaign released “Jane,” a new 30-second TV ad featuring Jane Portman. The campaign is broadcasting this ad on TV and online across Ohio, and it is part of the Portman Campaign's $15 million ad reservation announced in May. In the ad, Jane talks about how she and Rob met on a blind date, how they have been married for more than 30 years and have three terrific kids. She highlights Rob's upbringing, saying that he has stayed true to his Midwestern values that were instilled in him by his family growing up in Cincinnati, and she emphasizes Rob's work to combat human trafficking and tackle the heroin and prescription drug epidemic gripping families across Ohio. In case you missed it, here is what they had to say:
