ICYMI: Jane Timken Earns Back to Back Endorsements from U.S. Senator Rob Portman and Former Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway

February 17, 2022

U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken landed two huge endorsements this week. Retiring Senator Rob Portman endorsed Timken to be his successor while former Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway joined the Timken team as a supporter and Senior Strategist. 

What They Are Saying: 

Cincinnati Enquirer:

“In a statement provided to The (Cincinnati) Enquirer’s political columnist Jason Williams, Portman lauded Timken’s work as chair of the Ohio Republican Party and said she’s best equipped to “advance conservative Republican policies to help Ohio workers and families.”

Fox News:

“Retiring Ohio Sen. Rob Portman Wednesday endorsed Jane Timken in the crowded GOP primary to replace him, the second major endorsement for Timken in as many days.”


“This is a major, if unsurprising, development in the Ohio Senate GOP primary. Portman carries decades-long, close ties to state’s GOP power brokers and donors. Will be following how Trump and allies respond, not only in terms of endorsements, but $.”

National Journal:

“Big Development in #OHSEN primary…’I am confident in her ability to win both the primary and general elections.'”   

“Expect influx of money – at least $850k – from donors who committed to give if
and when Portman was on board.” 
WEWS Cleveland:

“Big Move in the Republican Ohio Senate race as Rob Portman chimes in on his potential successor…”

“Kellyanne Conway has endorsed Jane Timken for Senate: ‘In a field of click-bait candidates, celebrities and rich guys trying to buy this election, Jane stands out as the thoughtful leader, mom on a mission, and problem-solver ready to tackle the issues facing Ohio.'”
