Candidate Details

Sherrod Brown

Senate - Incumbent

Sen. Sherrod Brown has earned a reputation as a principled progressive on both domestic and foreign policy issues. A member of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, Brown recently won reelection after beating the state’s treasurer Josh Mandel in 2012. Brown succeeded in decisively defeating Mandel, despite the millions of dollars in outside spending that poured into Ohio in support of Mandel’s campaign. Before entering the Senate, Brown represented suburban Cleveland in Congress for seven terms, where he served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and was a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Brown is a graduate of Yale University and holds two graduate degrees from The Ohio State University.
