Ohio Sen. Rob Portman said on Sunday he was “disappointed” by President Barack Obama’s decision to revert Mt. McKinley’s name to its Alaska Native name, Denali.

Portman, who has represented Ohio in the Senate since 2011, said Obama’s decision was “another example of the President going around Congress.”

House Speaker (and fellow Ohioan) John Boehner (R) said Monday he was “deeply disappointed” by the President’s decision.
