November 9, 2016 | Press Releases

COLUMBUS, OH – U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) issued the following statement regarding the election victory of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence:

“I congratulate Donald Trump on his historic election victory last night and I look forward to working with him, Mike Pence, and the new administration on a whole range of issues. Our country faces serious challenges, from the weak recovery and the middle-class squeeze, to an epidemic of drug addiction, to our growing national security threats. To solve these problems, we need to come together and rise above the dysfunction in Washington. I’m pleased President-Elect Trump has already begun that process of reaching out to all Americans with his inclusive victory speech last night. As I said in my remarks last night, I know if we work together we can deliver results and make a real difference in the lives of Ohioans and all Americans.”
