WASHINGTON, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Chemistry Council (ACC) will run advertisements expressing support for Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH). The ads highlight Sen. Portman's leadership on issues that help our economy and Ohio families.

"Sen. Portman understands the challenges facing our economy, and during his time in office, he has been a champion of commonsense policies that empower businesses to thrive and create good-paying jobs," explained ACC President and CEO Cal Dooley. "His conservative leadership on policies that keep taxes low and federal spending in check has been critical to America's manufacturing sector and small businesses in the Buckeye State and across our nation."

"Ohio is the sixth largest chemistry-producing state," continued Dooley. "Because of Ohio's impact on our industry and as representatives one of the nation's largest manufacturing sectors, we want to acknowledge Sen. Portman's hard work and bipartisan leadership on key issues that help our economy."

The ads for Sen. Portman will run for three weeks throughout Ohio and will encourage constituents to contact the office of the Senator to tell him to keep up the good work.
