We endorse Sittenfeld in Senate primary
Ohio Democrats should nominate PG Sittenfeld to challenge the re-election of Republican Sen. Rob Portman, because Ohio needs to debate its future, not rehash its past.
Sittenfeld, 31, is a member of Cincinnati's City Council. He's smart, eloquent and aims to help Ohioans left behind by an economy skewed against many. Sittenfeld also is in tune with the national revulsion against handgun violence – and against officeholders who've prized National Rifle Association endorsements more than constituents' lives.
Sittenfeld's dynamism would give Portman a real race, the kind Ohio voters deserve.
