U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown believes there’s finally been a shift in the gun control debate.

He points to more citizens speaking out on the issue. He also cites the recent publicity about which members of Congress are taking money from gun lobbyists and how much they’re getting.

With another government shutdown looming this week, Senate Democrats, including Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, are still hoping to strike a deal on protections for the undocumented immigrants known as "Dreamers." But at a news conference Monday, Brown suggested that failure to reach an agreement on the issue is "unlikely" to result in another shutdown.

The U.S. House and Senate have passed the most sweeping tax overhaul in decades, with the bill splitting down party lines. Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown contends that this primarily benefits the rich and will ballon the deficit, while his Republican counterpart Rob Portman argues that this can help pay down the deficit in the long run.

“It’s just morally outrageous, the whole thing.”

Sen. Al Franken

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.


The teaming up of Mike DeWine and Jon Husted to run as governor and lieutenant governor has not deterred the other two GOP candidates, Mary Taylor and Jim Renacci. Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow talked to Ohio’s top ranking Democrat to see what he thinks about the race now.
