This is an easy call for GOP supporters across the country. Rob Portman is smart, experienced, a skilled communicator and an exceptional candidate. It wil be a tough race, but one that can be won if the Ohio GOP avoids a knock-down primary.
When Portman announces, I hope his team has a web site up and running, the early response to which will say a great deal about the energy level of Republicans across the country. Judging by the reaction to the Georgia run-off, most center-right voters want to start working now to return balance to D.C.
