Will: Senator’s no populist, still popular
TERRACE PARK, Ohio — U.S. Sen. Rob Portman probably will win a second term, despite the fact that he deserves to. The swarm of young people who gathered on a Saturday morning in this Cincinnati suburb to feast on doughnuts and his gratitude are among the 5,000 volunteer interns, including students from 35 campuses, who have made 3.5 million voter contacts. Portman’s supporters are a forgiving sort, undeterred by his many accomplishments and qualifications that could be disqualifying in this season of populist antagonism toward people who have actually governed.

The GOP's smear Ted Strickland effort is working but Rob Portman's campaign is no profile in courage: Brent Larkin
Sen. Rob Portman and his allies are smashing every Ohio campaign spending record imaginable. Before it's over, expect about $70 million to be spent on his behalf as he seeks re-election in Ohio, writes Brent Larkin. CLEVELAND -- Republicans knew all long the best way to beat Ted Strickland was to destroy his reputation.   So, early on, they set out to end the former Democratic governor's long career in public life by waging a campaign unlike anything Ohio has ever seen.   Way back in February 2015, I wrote of Republican Sen. Rob Portman's re-election strategy: "By the time Portman is done spending (insert a number here north of $25 million), even some Democrats will be convinced Strickland was the most notorious job-killer in Ohio history."   2015: Strickland's Senate candidacy an expression of Ohio Democrats' weakness: Brent Larkin Mission accomplished - almost.   And as for that $25 million, it's now nearly twice as much.   So no one should be even a bit surprised all that money was used to finance an efficient, calculated and very public political execution.   At times, it's been almost painful to watch. Every day, the television airways are flooded with ads suggesting Ohio lost so many jobs on Strickland's watch as governor that he almost singlehandedly wrecked the state. It's all an exaggeration, of course, albeit one largely within the boundaries of what now qualifies as fair political commentary.     Portman and his allies are smashing every Ohio campaign spending record imaginable. Before it's over, expect about $70 million to be spent on his behalf.   A huge portion of it is coming from some genuinely awful human beings, people like the Koch brothers and the folks who run the gun lobby.   June: Conservative group drops another $2.7M on anti-Ted Strickland TV ad But it's working.     Strickland's campaign is on life support. He's trailing Portman by high single digits. His fundraising in Ohio has been underwhelming for more than a year.   Read more: Jeremy Pelzer analysis of why Strickland is so behind in Senate race And not about to waste money on a Senate race they're unlikely to win, Washington Democrats are pulling essential advertising money out of Ohio and moving it to other states.   But perhaps the most telltale sign of all is that Charles and David Koch, the vile billionaire brothers determined to wreck the environment by wiping out any and all government regulation of their polluting industries, have reportedly closed their checkbook and moved on. Aug. 30: Koch brothers cancel $2.1M worth of Ohio Senate ads Yet before they left, the shadowy groups the Koch brothers fund had poured nearly $7 million into the smear Strickland effort.   If Portman wins, Charles and David Koch will demand his support on every single matter that impacts their evil empire.   We'll be watching.   Like Strickland, Portman is a genuinely decent guy. He's smart, works hard for and cares about Ohio.   But it's hard to shed the notion Portman left his conscience at home in this race. Watching him struggle to have it both ways -- supporting Donald Trump while running to the other end of the state whenever Trump visits Ohio -- is at times pathetic.   No one has done more to promote Portman's career in public service than the Bush family, notably former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. Yet after all the two Bush presidents did -- and continue to do -- for him, Portman now supports for president a man who has regularly demeaned that family in the crudest terms imaginable.   Some things in life should be more important than winning an election.   Strickland's best remaining hope is for another crazed Trump comment that brings down dozens of Republicans now deemed safe -- preferably something the emotionally unstable candidate utters at one of those frenzied rallies teeming with white males who wake up each morning angry over their lot in life.   Far more likely is an Election Day verdict that, at age 75, Strickland ran one race too many.   Rob Portman, Ted Strickland get glowing health reports So, who's to blame for yet another monumental Democratic debacle in Ohio?   As one longtime political insider aptly put it, "The ship of fools is quite large."   At the top of any list would be those who lobbied for Strickland to run: Washington Democratic power brokers; Bill and Hillary Clinton; the Ohio Democratic Party; and - as always - the public-sector labor unions, in this case, most notably, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.   With disaster looming, Democrats are doing what they usually do: marshaling their excuses.   "No one short of John Glenn or LeBron James could take $45 million of attack ads and be ahead," said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. "Is Ohio for sale? That's what this race is all about."   He's half right.   Ohio is for sale. But the race is also about the Democratic Party's inexplicable decision to ram an early Strickland endorsement down the throats of rank-and-file Democrats -- infuriating both young voters and Democrats offended by Strickland's lifelong opposition to common-sense gun laws.   Yes, Strickland crushed 31-year-old Cincinnati Councilman PG Sittenfeld in the party primary. But the former governor's record was low-hanging fruit for the Portman campaign. Attacking Sittenfeld would have proven more difficult, and riskier.   Instead of looking to the future, Democrats went with a candidate who would be the oldest true freshman ever elected to the U.S. Senate. In a year when voters are desperate for change, the people who control the state party went the wrong way.   Some things never change.

Mike Pence breaks with Donald Trump on 'birther' comments: Politics Extra
Pence declined to say whether Trump should apologize for his "birther" comments. Sen. Barbara Boxer calls for a probe into Trump Model Management. The State Department found only one new email from Clinton's private server related to Benghazi. Read more in today's Politics Extra. Trump's "birther" comments: When asked on Fox News Tuesday night whether he thinks his 2012 demands for President Obama to release his birth certificate are affecting his support among African-Americans, Donald Trump said, "I don't know. I have no idea," reports CBS News. He went on to say that the issue might hurt him with some black voters, but, "I don't know why. I really don't know why." Trump told host Bill O'Reilly that he was the first person to bring up the topic in a while, when Trump was actually asked about it earlier this week and last week. WPVI, a Philadelphia TV station, asked Trump in an interview that aired Sunday whether he regretted bringing up Obama's birth certificate. "I don't talk about it anymore," he said. Trump surrogate Ben Carson said Tuesday on CNN the Republican nominee should apologize for his comments about the "birther nonsense." But Pence is breaking with his running mate: Mike Pence declined Wednesday to say whether Trump should apologize for suggesting Obama was born outside the U.S., but he did say Trump's stance wouldn't hurt him among minority voters, reports Politico. The Indiana governor also said he personally believes Obama was born in Hawaii. "I just don't know where he's coming from on foreign policy and on economics and on Obamacare," Pence told reporters in San Diego. Trump lifts ban on media outlets: Trump said Wednesday he is ending his campaign's ban on several news organizations that were previously stripped of their credentials to cover his events, reports The Washington Post. The Post, along with the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast, Politico and Buzzfeed, were among the media organizations banned by Trump because of what he deemed unfair coverage of his campaign. Boxer calls for Trump Model Management investigation: Sen. Barbara Boxer on Wednesday called on U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to open an investigation into Trump's model management company over allegations that it broke immigration laws, reports Politico. The California Democrat's request came after a report from Mother Jones magazine alleging that Trump Model Management employed foreign women who had traveled to the U.S. on tourist visas that did not permit them to work. Trump's donation to Bondi: The scandal around Trump's 2013 donation to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is intensifying, reports Politico. Trump and Bondi continue to deny any wrongdoing. Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday on "Good Morning America" that the GOP nominee "has supported many, many Republican candidates" while suggesting that the scandal surrounding the Clinton Foundation and the State Department is more significant. The campaign is also facing criticism in editorials from the Miami Herald, The New York Times and the Orlando Sentinel. Bill Clinton also criticized his wife's general election opponent Wednesday, saying at a rally in Orlando that Trump "attacked my foundation. He uses his foundation's money to pay off your attorney general." State Department reviews Clinton emails: The State Department said Wednesday that only one email from the collection of 14,900 new documents the FBI found from Hillary Clinton's private server directly references the Benghazi attacks, reports CNN. The department said last week there could be as many as 30 exchanges related to Benghazi, but told a federal court that there was only one that had not been previously released, and it was a letter of praise from an ambassador. Most voters oppose Trump's wall: About 6 in 10 voters oppose building a wall along the entire border with Mexico, and about 3 in 4 doubt that Mexico would ultimately pay for the wall, according to Wednesday's CNN/ORC poll. However, voters are almost evenly split on whether they trust Clinton, 49 percent, or Trump, 47 percent, more on the issue of immigration. MSNBC "unskews" CNN poll: Tuesday's CNN/ORC poll shows Trump leading Clinton by two points, but MSNBC host Chuck Todd said Wednesday his network estimates that the poll may have oversampled white voters without a college degree, reports Politico. "Whites without a college degree appear to make up nearly half of their sample," Todd said, discussing one of Trump's strongest groups. "In 2012, by the way, whites without a college degree was slightly more than a third of all voters." His conclusion was that CNN assumed an electorate "that is not an impossible scenario for Trump, but it would be a historic shift if it occurred." With the numbers adjusted to reflect the electorate four years ago, Clinton's two-point deficit shifted for a four-point lead, 46 percent to 42 percent. Fundraising: Trump's campaign, along with his joint committees, raised $90 million in August, reports CNN. A Trump campaign official said Wednesday the campaign made a substantial haul, largely from small-dollar donors, despite its relatively small fundraising operation. Clinton's campaign, along with the Democratic National Committee and other state parties, collected $143 million in August. The Democratic nominee has prioritized exclusive fundraising events and still held a commanding lead in the cash race going into September. A third GOP cabinet secretary endorses Clinton: Louis Wade Sullivan, the only African-American to serve as a cabinet secretary under George H. W. Bush, said Wednesday he is crossing party lines to endorse Clinton's presidential campaign, reports The Huffington Post. "Though my enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton is somewhat tempered, I certainly believe she is an infinitely better choice for president than Donald Trump," said the former health and human services secretary and self-described lifelong moderate Republican.
