Same-sex marriage foes target Sen. Rob Portman

Posted By on Mon, Nov 10, 2014 at 2:23 PM

The National Organization for Marriage, an anti-gay group, says it will target Ohio Sen. Rob Portman for defeat in 2016, either for re-election or in a presidential candidacy, because of his support for same-sex marriage. It worked against at least two gay Republican candidates who lost this year, though not to Democrats who opposed same-sex marriage.

The news warms me a little bit toward Republican victor Tom Cotton. Portman joined him for a couple of events, including a Razoarback watch party, on the weekend before the election. Cotton even announced publicly that Portman would be with him on his "road to victory" tour.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
