COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The chairman of the Ohio Republican Party says the state GOP will continue to stand behind U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, who has announced his support of gay marriage.
Chairman Bob Bennett acknowledged Friday that there would be Republicans who will disagree with Portman's decision. But Bennett said he respects the senator's right to make up his own mind.

Not that we didn't know this already, but if the GOP still supports Portman after this flip-flop, we are doomed. I wish there were more conservatives in the political arena anymore, but there are just so few.
Ohio needs a new Party.

Honorable men stand along side one another.
That’s it, go ahead and make law to force the increasing penetration of homosexuality upon those not interested.
Notice he doesn’t say he respects your right to disagree
He was never a conservative and he proves that snakes come in both flavors, republican and democrat....
Will he let his constituency know when it happens that one man’s penis fits into another man’s rectum? Then we can all breathe a sigh of relief.
Hey Bobby....I KNOW you’ve been there a LOOOOOOONNNGGG time, but Rob isn’t going to get ANY CONSERVATIVE support....he MAY get the LOG CABIN support!!! OMG!!! Portman is an EMBARRASSMENT!!! He called in CNN to tell him this NEWS!!! PATHETIC!!!!!! DISGUSTING!!! I will NEVER TRUST him again....NEVER!!
Apparently, he would.
It sure does!
So which stand is the lie??
I think Bennett needs to go...along with Portman...and many others!
If these homosexuals would sit on their butt and keep their mouth shut, none of this would be a problem.
They've got to get over this 'gay's are cute' strategy ~ the second the American people detect waffling on the gay issue ~ letting them run for office ~ letting them run some other guy for office ~ taking political party offices ~ making policy ~ speaking for the top candidates ~ they don't bother voting for Republicans.
The idiots in Ohio appear to have forgotten 2006.
Figures. THIS is why conservatives are bailing from the GOP.
Yep, they just don’t get it.
As if McCain wasn’t already singlehandedly destroying the Party.
Mitt Romney, 2012 GOP nominee and the governor who gave us “gay marriage” and who was running pro-choice ads there just before the election, lost Ohio.
The GOP seems to have a new agenda regardless of the consequences.
If Republicans behave like Democrats, why do we need two parties? Seems the Republican Party is no longer happy with being the Dems ‘Washington Generals’ . They want ‘market share’ of the vote.
Et tu, Bennet? And on the Ides of March!
“If these homosexuals would sit on their butts and keep their mouth shut, none of this would be a problem.”
Good one!! LOL
That's probably safer than standing in front of him.
I just read that Boehner supports gay marriage.
Well, it’s official then....for Conservatives, who aren’t supportive of sex deviates, the Republican Party Death Knell is that sound you are hearing in Ohio......
Do you have a source for that?
He is stepping down on May 31st.
I have no intention of supporting any party that won't oppose same-sex marriage. So, the Ohio GOP better make it clear it opposes perverting what marriage is or I won't be showing up to vote.
Marriage is dead across the board, Portman definition of marriage is in fact the problem.
What you don’t recognize however is that yours is very much the same, that it should be first and foremost love rather than family.
Everyone I tell this rejects this fact because it has been so drilled into us over the last 100 years. But it is indeed this simple misplacement of the idea of marriage that is the root of all the problems surrounding the institution.
Emotional feelings are like sand, they shift, they turn and they give way with the coming and going of the waves of life. If you build your marriage on the foundation of your emotions it is no different then building a house upon a foundation of sand.
Well the Republican party is basically dead because they wont stand for anything, and they have been successfully blacklisted by entire ethic group who now vote for Democrats as slaves to their racial identity, like backs.
In this climate there can be no future for the any republican party, or this land as a free country for that matter. Forming a new party could and by all rights should take a decade or more.
The political parties compete with each other for support from a small, special pool of constituents now, and a profile of the typical individual from that pool has developed for all to see.
When will the rank-n-file tell the party to take a hike?
It’s funny that you said that. I’ve been writing my Congressman and Senators for years and years. (I send them donations on occasion.) What I get back is always something namby-pamby as if my letters were never read for content. The party does not care about little ole me nor my family. They only care about power and their own lined pockets. I’ve had it! I’m done!
“The party does not care about little ole me nor my family.”
You got that right.
Ohio needs a new party Chair and (R) Senator. This clown rode in on the Tea Party wave and, unfortunately, his term isn’t up ‘til 2016.
Rob Portman is a failure as a father, in my opinion.
The chairman of the Ohio Republican Party says the state GOP will continue to stand behind U.S. Sen. Rob Portman,
Probably the safest place to stand if he is anything like his son.
NO LONGER SUPPORT THE GOP....AND I'VE LET THEM KNOW...
It was a news item on Yahoo.com. However, I was mistaken about Boehner, himself.
