Portman (R-Ohio) also said Wednesday he wouldn’t meet with a potential Obama pick.
“Not if we’re not going to move forward,” said Portman, who’s under attack from expected general election opponent Ted Strickland, a former democratic governor.
A majority of Ohio voters think the Senate should at least hold hearings for a nominee, “including 58 percent of women and independents,” according to the Huffington Post
. Portman’s decision to follow Mitch McConnell, who barely managed to win the approval of 14% of Ohio voters
, is extreme as it is dangerous to his re-election campaign.
Portman should stop obstructing justice and do his job.
