David Broder tells the truth:
Here are the important parts of his op-ed
Rob Portman, [is on] the verge of victory in the Ohio Senate race and conceivably could make him the Republican presidential nominee in 2016.
Portman ... amassed a giant war chest from Cincinnati business supporters and figures in the Bush fundraising network ...
Democratic Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher ... has tried repeatedly in this campaign to portray Portman as the embodiment of everything wrong with the Republican Party -- a budgeter who created deficits and a trade czar who gave away jobs. Portman, thanks to his planning and his funding, appears to have won the argument with the public.
"the Bush fundraising network" sounds so innocuous.
