Sen. Rob Portman to appear Friday in Mentor, Chardon
U.S. Sen. Rob Portman will visit Mentor and Chardon on Friday afternoon as part of the Commit to Mitt Early Vote Express Tour Bus, according to Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign.
Portman, R-Ohio, will appear at the Mentor Victory Center, 7488 Mentor Ave., at 1 p.m. and later will head to Geauga County Republican Party Headquarters, 11993 Ravenna Road, Chardon, for a 2:30 p.m. appearance.
Portman plans to lay out the choice he believes voters face in November between two very different visions for our nation’s future.
At each stop, Republican supporters will hold Commit to Mitt Early Voting events and make phone calls from the bus reminding people to vote early or return their absentee ballots. The Early Vote Express tour kicked off October 2 and has since visited 63 counties.
The senator who has actively been an active part of Romney campaign efforts will also make stops in Avon Lake, Fairview Park and Kent as part of the effort to encourage Ohioans to vote early for the GOP ticket.
