One-Beer Portman

by Robert Costa

The Ohio senator has the last laugh:

Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, isn’t taking the familiar criticism that he’s a “boring white guy” lying down anymore.

To prove it, he sent a 12 oz. bottle of Bud Light as a gift to Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartman’s office. Hartman, who has known Portman for over a decade, was recently quoted in the senator’s hometown paper saying, “Rob Portman has had one beer in more places than any man in America.”

Here’s Portman’s note: “Greg, thanks for talking to the Enquirer about me. The one beer comment is actually true! I love that one beer though. Here’s one for you!”
