Portman Takes Lead in Senate Race


A Quinnipiac poll released this week shows Senator Rob Portman leading former Governor Ted Strickland, 47-40 percent, in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race. The poll, covering swing state Senate races in Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania, noted:  “The numbers seem to be breaking the Republican way in the battle for control of the U.S. Senate, at least when it comes to the critical swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.”
