Election Night 2018

Senator Sherrod Brown won re-election for his seat, defeating Republican Jim Renacci. Brown will hold the seat for another six years.

The race was the first Ohio race to be called on air, eliciting a round of cheers and applause from the Democratic watch party in Columbus. 

Brown took to the stage about an hour after the call and praised his win in a state that “pundits say is just too hard for a progressive Democrat.”

“We celebrate the worker. … And that is the blueprint for America in 2020,” Brown said.
