The bigotry of Portman or his constituents? You're making your original statement more ambiguous because you latched onto a response directed to another person.

It is the job of Portman to represent his constituents. But obviously even in a conservative district, not everyone has the same views on every issue. So it comes down to discretion. If enough people like his discretion, he gets reelected. If not, he gets ousted.
