Senator Portman focused on 2014 Senate run

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Ohio senator Rob Portman's office says he has not taken any action toward a run for the White House.

This comes in response to reports that he's putting together an exploratory committee.

Portman's Senate office put out a statement, "Senator Portman is focused on 2014 and winning the majority in the Senate. He has not taken any steps beyond helping Republicans win back the Senate in November and he plans to run for Senate in Ohio at this time."
The statement does leave room for Senator Portman to change his mind about seeking the presidency. In the past, he has said if he ever does seek that office he will not seek re-election to the Senate at the same time.
