CINCINNATI - Ohio Sen. Rob Portman spoke to several supporters on the west side of Cincinnati, making it one of his stops in a statewide Buckeye Blitz tour.
Saturday's stop took place at the Westwood Victory Center.
Portman stopped in Westwood to greet and thank supporters and volunteers of Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney's campaign.
During the event, Portman spoke about jobs, the economy and the nation's budget.
He also spoke on behalf of rumors that he may end up as Romney's vice presidential candidate come the November election.
"I'd like to do everything I can to help, and one way I can help in the United States Senate is with new leadership and some good new policies," Sen. Portman said. "I'd like to put together some proposals to deal with the deficit that will otherwise be left with our kids and grandkids."
His supporters would like to see Romney choose Portman as his running mate.
"I think he'll choose who fits the bill properly," supporter Christina Gilpin said. "If he chooses Sen. Portman, that's great."
"Not only would he bring the state of Ohio, but more than that, he would make a great vice president," supporter Betsy Armstrong said.
Sen. Portman said he hasn't downloaded the "Mitt's VP" app just yet. He hopes to find out who's selected as Romney's vice presidential candidate another way.
If you would like to download the app, you can visit the App Store on either your iPhone or Android.
