Politico.com reported today that Ohio's junior senator, Rob Portman, is interested in chairing the National Republican Senatorial Comm

ittee (NRSC) in the 2014 campaign cycle.

The website cited two unnamed sources "familiar with his thinking" who said Portman - who was on the short list of potential running mates for GOP nominee Mitt Romney - is considering running for the NRSC job. Portman - who campaigned hard for Romney throughout Ohio - has said nothing on the subject.
