Rob Portman on Cut, Cap and Balance

 Does anybody know if Senator Portman has taken a position on Cut, Cap and Balance?

I ask because I don't see his name and picture among the pledge signers and I think he really should be on board if he's half the fiscal conservative he claims to be...

UPDATE: Apparently, Portman is a co-sponsor of the Senate version.  Let's see if he votes for it or pushes for a vote at all.  I am in full Verify, Then Trust mode...particularly when it comes to Republican Senators from Ohio.

UPDATE 2: Over on Twitter, Team Portman spokesman says this:
To answer ? raised in your post, Rob will be @ a press conf tmrw w House/Sen leaders of CC&B pushing for Senate vote + passage
Outstanding!  I look forward to hearing what he has to say.
