Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, reportedly on Gov. Mitt Romney’s short list of prospective vice-presidential candidates, is expected to visit Lancaster County on Monday to rally supporters and stump for the Republican nominee.
Portman, a rising star in national Republican politics, is scheduled to arrive at theLancaster County Farm & Home Center, 1383 Arcadia Road, Lancaster, at 11:30 a.m. and take the stage at noon to address a throng of Republicans. The event is free and open to the public. Organizers say this will be an opportunity for Romney supporters to join coalitions, purchase Romney memorabilia and meet the man who may very well be the next vice-president of the United States.
“The fact that Lancaster is a primary stop for the potential vice-presidential nominee demonstrates the importance of our county in this election,” said Scott Boyd, Chairman of the Republican Committee of Lancaster County. “Make no mistake, Pennsylvania is in play, and Lancaster County is pivotal to turning PA red.”
