Sen. Rob Portman on 2016: After the Election "I’ll take a look at it” (Full CSM Breakfast/Presentation/Q&A 09-11-14)

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman acknowledged Thursday he is thinking about running for president in 2016.
“I’m focused, as you can tell, on 2014 and on doing my job as a senator. And that’s a full plate right now,” the Republican lawmaker said during a breakfast with reporters at the St. Regis. “But after the election….I’ll take a look at it.”
Asked if a recent trip to the early nominating state of New Hampshire has influenced his considerations about a White House run, Portman cracked: “Well, my daughter goes to school up there, so part of my heart is in New Hampshire.”
Portman, the former director of the Office of Management and Budget under George W. Bush, made the comments during an event organized by the Christian Science Monitor.
The 58-year-old lawyer, former congressman and United States trade representative doesn’t have a lot of national name recognition, but he does have significant experience in the world of presidential campaign politics.
