Rob Portman speaks at the Wall Street Journal's CEO Council meeting in Washington

In re-election bid, Ohio senator keeps safe distance from Trump

Rob Portman speaks at the Wall Street Journal's CEO Council meeting in WashingtonBy Kim Palmer and Susan Cornwell COLUMBUS, Ohio/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Rob Portman is largely ignoring Donald Trump, which is hard to do in U.S. politics today, but the strategy seems to be working for the Republican senator in his re-election bid in Ohio. As congressional Republicans across the country grapple with the Trump effect on their home-state campaigns, the mild-mannered Portman, 60, may be pointing the way forward in his race, the nation’s most expensive Senate contest so far this year. Last week in Columbus, the state capital, Portman made no mention of Trump in a campaign appearance, though the New York businessman is the Republican presidential nominee and Portman has endorsed him.
