Sen. Rob Portman’s (R., Ohio) reelection campaign just released a new ad featuring retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey.
McCaffrey was a four star general before he became the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy for part of President Bill Clinton’s time in office.
In the ad, McCaffrey praised Portman’s work in the Senate tackling the growing heroin epidemic, which has hit parts of Ohio severely.
"Senator Portman did the hard work," McCaffrey said. "He was able to pull together people from both parties and get the CARA Act passed to deal with this wave of heroin addiction that’s sweeping the country."
