COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A Republican senator from Ohio is amassing millions of dollars toward his 2022 reelection bid, which falls in the middle of President Donald Trump’s would-be second term.

Sen. Rob Portman, of Cincinnati, added more than $1 million to his already healthy campaign fund Friday. A campaign spokesperson tells The Associated Press the money was raised at a hometown event hosted by members of the wealthy Lindner family.

Earlier last week, Portman’s campaign said he raised $100,000 at a Cleveland fundraiser.

All that’s on top of nearly $2.4 million Portman reported having on hand at the end of the first quarter.

Portman’s early fundraising could be critical as he balances voter-friendly efforts at bipartisanship with support for a president who March polling showed makes 70% of Ohioans anxious or angry.
