Seeking his third term representing Ohio in the U.S. Senate, Democrat Sherrod Brown is a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Ohio Secretary of State and member of the Ohio House of Representatives. The Mansfield native is expected to face Republican Josh Mandel in the November 2018 election.
