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.

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown is weighing-in on the Republican tax plan in the Senate, including a piece that he says was slipped-in “in the dead of night” to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.

Republicans in the U.S. Senate have rolled out their tax reform plan to join what the Trump Administration and the U.S. House have offered. Ohio's two Senators plan to be key players in the process.

Democrat Sherrod Brown and Republican Rob Portman are both in the committee that will hear the tax reform plan.

Portman said on the Senate floor there are many provisions that would result in higher wages for employees, such as a measure to reduce the corporate tax.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says Ohio could learn from this week’s wins for Democrats in New Jersey and Virginia.

Brown says that when voters elected Democratic governors in the two states -- and a number of other Democrats around the country -- this week, they were really sending a message about the federal government and its handling of things like health care. He says that should resonate with Ohioans next year.
