Portman stops for lunch in Batavia on campaign trail

Republican Senate candidate Rob Portman made a short stop in Batavia Tuesday, Aug. 3.

The former congressman and aide to George W. Bush met with several county residents and had lunch at the Clermont Inn in Batavia after his opponent Lt. Governor Lee Fischer had a last minute change of plans. Fischer had scheduled a meeting at The Clermont Inn before a meeting in Adams County, but later canceled due to time constraints.

Portman talked with several Republicans who said they had been campaigning for him at the Clermont County Fair last week.
