Ohio GOP US Sen. Portman wins re-election over ex-governorBy Sheila Mcguire Nov 11, 2016
The Ohio U.S. Senate race between Democrat Ted Strickland and Republican Rob Portman is getting a lot of attention and has been, not so much for what's being said in the ads, but, for the lack of ads at least from Strickland.
Portman has run a campaign based around creating jobs for the Buckeye State and trying to stop the state's opioid addiction problem.
Democrats nationally were pleased that Strickland, who at 75 would have been the nation's oldest freshman senator ever, was taking on Portman. He beat Democratic challenger Ted Strickland by more than 20 percentage points statewide amid strong voter turnout.
"I congratulate Donald Trump on his victory and thank Secretary Clinton for her service".
"I don't need to know who will be in the White House to tell you how I'm going to handle my responsibilities".
The party that wins control of the Senate will lead investigations and confirmation of the Supreme Court nominees of the next president.

The panel could decide to levy fines of up to $200,000, Fedorchak said, though she said such a high amount would be unlikely. She watched as law enforcement pushed protesters back toward the main camp, and says she saw officers use pepper spray.
"In different ways, and clearly in both parties, so many people feel that things have gone wrong for our great country".
"They expect better. We are capable of better and with a fresh start there will never be a better moment than now to rise above the dysfunction in Washington, DC, and find that common ground".

"It gives us an opportunity to move forward on that pro-growth agenda I talked about, whether it's to fix this broken tax code and bring some of that money that's perhaps overseas back to this country", he said. Strickland later apologized for the statement.
Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman also withdrew support for Trump toward the end of the race and wrote in a vote for Trump's running mate, vice president-elect and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
While Strickland was still the preferred candidate among most Ohio labor groups, Portman picked up endorsements from key unions, including the United Mine Workers of America and the 50,000-member Ohio Conference of Teamsters. Roughly a dozen races are seen as competitive in the House, where Democrats seek to re-take seats lost two years ago and a couple districts vacated by Republicans.
