Dems watch the Republican debate too

Sen. Sherrod Brown

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – He may be a Democrat, but he watched the Republican debate on Fox News Channel last night. US Senator from Ohio Sherrod Brown says he paid close attention knowing he may one day have to work with a Republican administration.

Senator Brown says since the debate was in Cleveland, he wanted the candidates to discuss the national issues that impact Ohio. Issues like manufacturing.

“In Lordstown, what we’ve done. In the steel industry in Youngstown. What we’ve done even with the Youngstown Incubator, that’s begun to build jobs with 3-D printing and other ways”, says Brown.

He also wanted to hear talk on the high cost of prescription drugs and the nation’s trade policies.
