Portman and Strickland Meet in First Debate Today at Noon
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Ahead of today’s first debate between Rob Portman and Ted Strickland, the Portman for Senate campaign launched Snapchat filters in Youngstown highlighting the records of the two candidates and issued the following statement before this afternoon’s debate in Youngstown.
From Michawn Rich, spokesperson: “Today’s debate will focus on the stark difference in the records of Ohio’s two candidates for United States Senate. Rob Portman is an independent voice getting results for Ohio families, passing over 45 bills into law, including efforts to combat Ohio’s addiction epidemic and fight back against human trafficking. On the other hand, Ted Strickland has the worst record of any candidate in America. As an ineffective congressman, Ted failed to pass a single bill into law during his 12 years in Congress, and Ohio lost more than 350,000 jobs and ranked 48th in job creation on his watch as governor. There’s a reason the Ohio Teamsters, the Ohio FOP, the IUOE Local 18, and the United Mine Workers endorsed Rob after previously supporting Ted: Ohio simply cannot afford a return to Retread Ted’s Ohio.”
Below are two Snapchat filters that users may place above their photos.
