WASHINGTON, DC (WDTN) – U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) issued the following statement after attending the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris:

I extend my congratulations to President and Dr. Biden, as well as Vice President Harris and Mr. Emhoff, on today’s historic Inauguration. I had the honor of attending, and I look forward to working with the new administration on areas where we agree in order to make a difference in the lives of Ohioans and all Americans. When we disagree, I will do so respectfully. Public service is a noble calling and anyone who serves deserves the respect of the American people, regardless of political affiliation.
