Portman for Senate Releases New TV Ad: “Steel”

$1 Million Statewide TV Ad Highlights Senator Portman’s Record of Standing Up to China and Fighting for Ohio Workers

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Today, the Portman for Senate campaign released “Steel,” the campaign’s newest TV ad, which begins airing statewide tomorrow. “Steel” highlights Rob’s record of standing up to China and fighting for Ohio workers against China’s unfair trade practices. The campaign will spend over $1 million broadcasting this ad across Ohio for the next two weeks.

The ad features Burke Byer of Byer Steel, a family-owned steel manufacturer that employs 90 workers in Cincinnati.

“Rob Portman is absolutely fighting for the American worker,” Burke Byer said. “If you give us a fair chance, nobody can beat us. China is doing things to create an unfair playing field. The threat to American manufacturing is real and Rob Portman gets that. The reason we have 90 employees is because Rob gave us another fighting chance.”
