Brown Pulls Ahead of DeWine
Rep. Sherrod Brown pulled ahead of Sen. Mike Dewine in a recent Rusmussen Reports Poll on the Ohio senate race. Nevertheless, Dewine is still considered the slight favorite, according to Congressional Quarterly, which classifies Ohio as "Leans Republican."
Sherrod Brown, the guy advertised on this page for no apparent reason, is a liberal Democrat with strong ties to labor interests. He is hoping to benefit from the anti-business sentiment in Ohio's rustbelt, as well as the general unpopularity of the GOP in the state, where the governor has an approval rating south of 20.
