Portman Calls His Senate Race ‘a Precursor to 2012’

From the Dayton Daily News:

[Portman] said if he’s elected, he hopes to turn things around in Washington to help Ohio as well as be able to ensure that people can pass down a better world for their children and grandchildren.

After his comments, Portman said he believes the Senate race is a precursor to the 2012 presidential campaign. Portman said Fisher is getting a lot of help from the Democratic National Committee because they think Ohio is going to be in important in 2012.

This raises the question — is Portman thinking of using his Senate experience as a springboard? People have gotten elected with less.
