Both of Ohio’s U.S. Senators are speaking out against the federal government shutdown. But Democrat Sherrod Brown and Republican Rob Portman are taking different stances on how to get it back open.
Brown says it’s time for Senate Republicans to approve a bipartisan budget despite President Donald Trump’s objections.
“There are beginning to be cracks in this ‘whatever the president wants, we do’ view of Senate Republicans and I’m hopeful that continues and it helps us open the government in the next couple of days,” Brown said.
