Portman: Trump Is “Definitely The Leader” Of The GOP

ABC News reports:

GOP Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio) on Sunday said former President Trump is “definitely the leader” of the Republican Party, one day after Trump held his first post-presidential rally in Ohio.

Portman, asked by ABC’s “This Week” host Jon Karl about Trump, said the ex-president remains the party leader given his “high popularity among the Republican base.”

“That’s what you saw last night, I think. You saw a big turnout,” Portman said. Karl noted that Portman did not attend the rally in his home state because he had a family commitment.

Portman is retiring next year.
