I got this response from Rob Portman. I had e mailed him to askhim to support the President:
Dear xxxxx (my name) Thank you for contacting me regarding the 2020 Presidential Election. It is good to hear from you and I appreciate the opportunity to engage with you.
The U.S. presidential election was held on November 3, 2020. With historic turnout across the board, it is clear that the American people were fully engaged in this election. The strong turnout for both candidates and both parties is a healthy sign for our democracy. Along with more than 71 million Americans, and a majority of Ohio voters, I voted for President Trump. In this close election, President Trump had every right to insist that all legally cast ballots are counted. He also has the right to appropriate recounts and the right to go to court to resolve any questions about irregularities. Allowing a fair and transparent process is important to providing Americans more assurances of the integrity of the election and helping the country heal after a contentious campaign. That has now happened, and although there were instances of fraud and irregularities, it has not been shown to be widespread enough to change the result of the election. In accordance with the Constitution and federal law, the Electoral College cast their votes for President on December 14, 2020. I think we need to respect this process the Founding Fathers established, and we must respect the will of the voters. States must take seriously the proven examples of fraud and irregularities, prosecute anyone who engaged in it, and review voting systems to maintain the integrity of our elections. The orderly transfer of power is a hallmark of our democracy, and although I supported President Trump, the Electoral College vote makes clear that Joe Biden is now President-Elect.
The presidential election was contentious and hard fought. Roughly half of America was bound to be disappointed with the outcome. My hope is that all of us, as Americans, regardless of who we supported in the campaign, will be willing to accept the result because a thorough process was followed and the final vote count was clear.
I also want to commend and congratulate Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, the county boards of elections, and the more than 50,000 Ohio poll workers for conducting a safe, secure, and transparent election in Ohio. It was not easy in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and I am grateful for their efforts.
Our country faces serious challenges, from the public health and economic crises brought on by COVID-19, to an epidemic of drug addiction, to our growing national security threats. To solve these problems, we need to come together and rise above the dysfunction in Washington. I know if we work together, we can deliver results and make a real difference in the lives of Ohioans and all Americans.
Thank you again for contacting me. It is an honor to represent you and the great state of Ohio in the United States Senate. Please visit HYPERLINK "http://www.portman.senate.gov/" www.portman.senate.gov for more information.
Sincerely, Rob Portman U.S. Senator
You should respond asking how many registered voters are there in America. Then do some math.
better than being ‘disappointed’ like this chicken sh*t Bushite.
Contact page. Using COVID as an excuse to not answer right away.
It hasn't happened. The vast majority of the cases were not even given a hearing.
Portman is a joke.
I don’t think they read these.
I remember years ago sending a letter to John McCain and the response was about another issue that I did not write to him about.
Just the “sincerely” at the close is enough to provoke revulsion.
He’s now king of the turds
Yeah, this guy needs to be primaried in the worst way.
Paging Jim Jordan!
It’s a canned response. Portman will do nothing. He’s been that way since he was first elected umpteen years ago.
Key word: “irreparable”
The ONLY was to get a response from a senator is to find out who their “people” are. Then write a letter to the Senator and copy the specific person with a cover letter.
If you send a form letter or “rant” you will get a form letter back. They cannot read all the emails.
It is important to know that if you are trying to get something specific done, rather than just voice an opinion.
What a pure, slimy, politician’s response. No wonder most people hate politicians. They make used car salesmen look like saints.
He’s up in 2022. Need I say more?
Sent Portman a love letter, since I voted for him last time around. I told him we are breaking up.
I also received this form email response. Can’t wait for a constitutionalist to primary him.
206 million. Why is that number significant?
“The U.S. presidential election was held on November 3, 2020.”
Portman is a real fount of knowledge.
This sounds like a bunch of standardized, generic talking points I’ve gotten from my worthless Republican Senator over the years.
These quislings are really nauseating.
