COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Portman for Senate campaign today launched ads targeting Governor Ted Strickland's support of President Obama's Iranian nuclear deal. The ads will begin running online immediately in all Ohio media markets and on FoxNews.com.
"National security will be a defining issue in this race and Governor Ted Strickland demonstrated that he's more interested in placating his former employer than preventing a nuclear Iran," campaign manager Corry Bliss said. "It is disappointing, but not surprising, given his role running the lobbying arm of the Center for American Progress, a group that has been a cheerleader for this deal. Rob has carefully studied the agreement, received input from experts, attended the briefings, and sought advice from fellow Ohioans. Rob believes this deal is dangerous and runs counter to the national security interests of the United States and our allies in the region."
The ads link to a poll where users may vote on who they stand with on the Iranian nuclear deal: Rob Portman or Ted Strickland.
