As the product of Ohio’s public schools, the son of a teacher, and a former public school teacher himself, Sherrod Brown knows how important a high-quality public education is.

In the U.S. Senate, Sherrod is committed to strengthening public education and investing in workforce development, advocating for a wide range of issues from school infrastructure to job training. He is not afraid to work across the aisle to get things done. In the 114th Congress, he ranked fourth out of 100 Senators for the most bills signed into law.

Sherrod is a champion of workers and the middle class. He has advocated for Ohio’s auto industry and saved thousands of manufacturing jobs. He also has stood on the front lines with firefighters, police officers, and labor unions to fight so-called “right-to-work” laws. He continues to work to strengthen collective bargaining rights and ensure a secure retirement for Ohio’s workers.
