(WKBN) – A candidate for Senator Rob Portman’s seat is now endorsed by Ohio U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown.
In a statement, Brown says Tim Ryan understands all work has dignity.
He went on to say Ryan has fought harder than anyone to make sure working people across the state get a fair shot.
Ryan’s Democratic challenger is Morgan Harper.
She issued a statement in response, saying the endorsement she wants is from the voters.
“This election is about the past versus the future. A 20-year incumbent taking money from corporations is the past. A new voice with a fresh vision for Ohio’s economy is the future,” Harper said.
The Republican National Committee also released a statement.
They say Ryan has a history of “deceiving hardworking Ohioans” and “pushing a radical agenda.”
