Senator Sherrod Brown

Republican Josh Mandel has launched his first TV ad in his quest to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown.

U.S. Sen. and 2008 presidential nominee John McCain is endorsing a fellow military veteran from Ohio in the
race for U.S. Senate.

McCain visited Ohio on Monday to support Treasurer Josh Mandel. McCain says the 34-year-old Republican "represents the new generation of leadership" that the senator says is needed to control spending, improve the economy and boost national security.

Mandel is challenging incumbent Democrat Sherrod Brown. Brown's campaign criticizes Mandel's lack of experience and ill attention to his treasurer's job.

Ohio's U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown was more than four months late paying a $922 tax bill on his Washington, D.C.,
condo apartment and got slapped with $123 in penalties and interest.

The first-term Democrat, who is running for re-election this year, settled the tax bill last week.

Spokeswoman Meghan Dubyak said Wednesday the senator misplaced the bill and paid it as soon as he found it. She says he's determined not to let it happen again.

Human Events, a conservative magazine and website, first reported the late tax earlier Wednesday.

Ohio U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown has offered his help to end the more than month-old lockout at a Northwest Ohio tire plant.

Multiple news outlets report the Democrat gave a pep talk Monday to Cooper Tire workers gathered at a packed union hall in Findlay.

Brown says he knows the union members are eager to get back to work.

Cooper Tire & Rubber is based in Findlay. In late November it locked out more than 1,000 union members at a factory in its hometown after workers voted down a tentative three-year  contract.
