Tell Rob Portman: Stop Fundraising Off Trump's Racism & Bigotry
It is hypocritical for Republicans to denounce Donald Trump while using his name to raise money for their campaigns. If Ohio Senator Rob Portman wants to represent our state's values, he should stop accepting financial support raised in Trump's name from the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Why is this important?
Donald Trump is a racist and a bigot, but the political committee that works to elect Republicans to the Senate has been profiting off of his name by selling Trump-branded merchandise since May.
Ohio Senator Rob Portman (R) has criticized some of Trump's remarks, but he's still accepting support from the sale of Trump merchandise to help his 2016 re-election campaign.
In a recent email, a Republican committee encouraged supporters to “claim” the “perfect gift” — a Trump koozie for $12 — “just in time for the holidays!”
They’re also selling bumper stickers that read “I’m with Trump,” further proof that Republicans like Senator Portman are willing to stand with Trump and his divisive ideas when it leads to a payoff for their campaigns.
It is absolutely hypocritical for Republicans to denounce Donald Trump while accepting campaign contributions raised in his name!
If Rob Portman truly represents the values of Ohio, he will demand that the National Republican Senatorial Committee stop using Donald Trump’s racism as a fundraising tool and refuse any donations made in his name.
Please join with me in demanding that Ohio Senator Rob Portman reject all funds raised by Trump’s racism and bigotry!
