* The group, Veterans and Military Families for Sherrod Brown, is promoting their support of Sen. Sherrod Brown because of his strong support for Vets and their families in this YouTube video:
When retired four-star General Johnnie E. Wilson declared his support for Sen. Sherrod Brown, he said the following (LINK):
I served in the military for nearly 40 years. I began as a private, developed into a noncommissioned officer, earned a commission and went on to reach the rank of four-star general. Having served at every level of command—having led and been led—I have come to recognize and value leadership as a fundamental element of one’s character. It is for this simple, but profound, reason I proudly endorse Sherrod Brown for reelection to the U.S. Senate.
Simply put, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown is a leader. Whether fighting to put Ohio’s Veterans back to work, giving our returning heroes the educational opportunities they deserve, or securing necessary funding for equipment and medical care for our troops, he is taking action and taking the lead. We want a leader who is there every day and Sherrod Brown is there for Ohio’s Veterans and military families. There is no stronger advocate for our community.
It is important to me that the interests of Ohio’s Veterans and military families are looked out for. Sherrod Brown is a true leader who cares about Veterans. It is because we can count on him being in our corner that I will be supporting Senator Brown for reelection this fall.

•••• It is pretty amazing that Republican Josh Mandel has plenty of time to visit so many fundraisers for himself in the state, around the country, and even the Bahamas, but he doesn't have time to provide the missing resumes from his hires in his department. The Ohio Democratic Party has filed their 9th records request for Mandel's records. He has refused their requests for 14 months!
