Humphrey School of Public Affairs of Virtual via Zoom Webinar

Finding common ground in Washington is rare and urgent. Rob Portman has a record of passing more than 200 bills that were signed into law by Presidents Obama, Trump, and Biden. His leadership is exemplified by the 2021 infrastructure bill that builds an economic lifeline to the future, support to defend Ukraine’s freedom in the face of growing Republican resistance, and courageous defense of his son’s decision to come out as gay. In conversation with moderator Larry Jacobs, Rob Portman will draw on his three decades of experience working for two Republican Presidents and serving in Congress as a Republican Representative and US Senator to identify his approaches to achieving bipartisan progress.

Rob Portman served in the US Senate from Ohio (2011-23) and US Congress (1993-2005). Since leaving office 16 months ago, Rob has established the Portman Center for Policy Solutions at the University of Cincinnati to promote civility and bipartisanship to find common ground to solve policy problems.
