Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown says he can provide as many as two-dozen Democratic votes if the Trump administration’s renegotiation of NAFTA includes the right protections for workers.  WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on yesterday’s trade meeting.

President Trump’s infrastructure plan is underwhelming Ohio’s Democratic U.S. senator, who had said it was an issue he hoped he and the White House could work on together. For Ohio Public Radio, WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the $1.5 trillion plan.

President Trump has until Friday to decide whether to release a secret Democratic rebuttal to the Nunes memo. Last week, the President released a previously-classified document authored by the Republican chair of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes. It alleged the FBI misused its surveillance authority.

President Donald Trump came to Blue Ash Monday to tout the Republican tax reform bill he signed into law; and boast that it is already paying dividends for American workers and companies.

Ohio’s Republican U.S. senator has once again endorsed a candidate in this year’s race against Democratic incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown. As Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler reports, Sen. Rob Portman is siding with a colleague who just joined the race over the candidate who’s been in it for months.

In May, Portman endorsed Treasurer Josh Mandel.

“Today I’m encouraging all Republicans to unify behind Josh so we can work together.”
