Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown says he is not surprised or worried about the lower Democratic voter turnout during yesterday's primary election.

Across the board, the Republican turn out was higher Ohio, though overall voter turnout was lower than typical primaries.

Brown says that shouldn't worry Democrats when it comes to November. He points to a divisive Republican primary.

Protestors were waiting for Steve Mnuchin, led by Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper, who said Ohio has trailed the national recovery for 57 months and suffered with stagnant wages for decades.
