Rob Portman (@senrobportman) pisses me off. I’m his constituent & I feel he’s a RINO.
I feel someone (or someones), need(s) to run against him in the Republican primary.
Who should it be?
Heck, maybe it should be me? If you were me, what would you do and how would you do it?
I’m slowly moving into retirement, easing out of my business which I started & grew to about $100M in revenue. I want to do something to move the country in the right direction, so maybe this is it.
I’m a young 60. I’ll be 63 in 2022. I’d do a 1-term-and-done, be gone at 69, and Ohio has 6-years to identify a better, brighter, more conservative replacement for me than someone like Portman.
I’ve had a successful business career, live a somewhat frugal lifestyle, don’t need money or power, and would do a good job representing Ohioans.
If you look at Portman’s bio on Wikipedia, it reads like the “Silver Spoon” cookbook. Private schools, Ivy League college, Michigan Law, marries upper-crust Cincinnati-society gal, vacations in the Himalayas. Works in law for 5-years and becomes career politician.
Portman worked in the private sector for 5-years, the rest in government. Yet, his net worth, according to Wiki, is over $8M. How does that square? Inheritance? Probably, and thus he’s created few, if any, jobs in his life. Reminds me of someone else … Bernie (@SenSanders)!
I’ve no delusions of grandeur. Portman already has a war chest for ’22.
He’s already got $3.1M in CASH for 2022, which he’s using today.
What should I do?
I’d love to have you share your thoughts with me!
