Sherrod Brown (D-OH) for Senate
Senator Sherrod Brown is the most prominent elected Democrat in Ohio. He is a progressive populist champion on national security and domestic issues who has retained strong support among some blue collar workers who otherwise have drifted to the Republican Party.
Senator Brown has risen steadily in politics from the Ohio State House to Ohio Secretary of State, to the U.S. House of Representatives for 14 years before defeating an incumbent Republican Senator in 2006 — with Council for a Livable World’s enthusiastic support. Recognizing his appeal to diverse groups of voters, he was mentioned as a candidate for Vice President in 2016.
In 2012, Senator Brown turned back a strong challenge from Josh Mandel (R), the 35-year-old Republican state treasurer, by 51–45 percent. Mandel announced he would run for the seat again, but dropped out of the race in early January 2018, citing his wife’s health. Ohio Republicans are currently attempting to find a viable candidate to compete with Senator Brown. The Cook Political Report rates the race “Lean Democratic.”
Senator Brown is a strong supporter of the Iran nuclear agreement, and has criticized the Trump’s administration decision not to certify the deal. He has also urged talks with a nuclear-armed North Korea, saying, “This is no time for bluster or empty threats.”
We need Senator Brown’s bold leadership and strong national security positions in the Senate.
