The heir to Ted Kennedy’s reputation as the “Liberal Lion” of the U.S. Senate stopped cutting bait Tuesday and started to fish.
Sherrod Brown, Ohio’s senior senator in Washington who ran and won in 2006 and again in 2012, endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for president Tuesday.
In a statement, Sen Brown said, “As Ohio’s working families continue to recover from the worst economic recession in our country’s history, we need a president who’s committed to growing our economy by lifting up the middle class. From opposing unfair trade deals to fighting for a fair financial system, Hillary Clinton has shown she puts working families first. She knows as president that her first job will be creating jobs for the middle class. I am proud to endorse her today because I know she will keep Ohio moving forward.?”
