Portman Makes Push for Student Voters in Ohio

Sen. Rob Portman launched a new coalition of college student supporters from different universities around Ohio Monday as a way to organize and reach a key demographic for his re-election campaign.

In a release shared Monday with RealClearPolitics, the campaign announced student chairs at 18 different schools, including The Ohio State University, one of the largest public universities in the country. The pitch to student voters also included a sponsored Instagram ad – the first time a Senate campaign has sponsored an advertisement on the popular social media app, according to the release.
