Ohio’s U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown is among those calling for the resignation of fellow Democrat Al Franken.

Several women have accused the Minnesota senator and former comedian of making unwanted advances, including groping and forcibly kissing them. Franken plans to make an announcement tomorrow.

Senators Tim Kaine and Al Franken campaigned for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at Lorain High School Thursday.  The vice presidential candidate and the former comedian urged Ohioans to take advantage of early voting.

Franken characterized himself as the poster child for every vote mattering. He reminded the Lorain audience that he won his seat by 312 votes. Franken encouraged Ohioans to cast their ballots early and then get involved in the campaign.
