Get out the Democratic vote, Ohio.

Rob Portman is done with the hyper-partisanship in the US Senate and has decided to retire at the age of 65. Which is when the rest of us would LIKE to retire.

It's just adorable that Portman cited 'partisan gridlock' as a reason why he is departing. The way to fix gridlock for Republicans is to step down and let Democrats get stuff done.

This is likely to be yet another 100 million dollar race. But it's the midterms, Republicans are likely to have a primary season focused on QAnon conspiracy theories, and yes, we can win this one if we adopt the Stacey Abrams playbook and get out our voters with all of our might.

And who knows, maybe the "Patriot Party" will field a candidate!!!

Can you help us out?
