Sen. Sherrod Brown Touts Biden's Economic Recovery Plan At DNC
For the third day in a row, an Ohio politician took the virtual stage at the Democratic National Convention. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) was tapped to tout Joe Biden's plan for the economy.
During his appearance, Brown spoke with Ohio business owners about the challenges of keeping their companies afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic.
That includes Molly Johnson, who owns a small tooling manufacturing company in Lake County.
"You're kind of forgotten, and the president always bragging about the stock market sort of leaves a lot of small manufacturing companies behind," Brown said.
"We could use a little help right now," Johnson responded, "and it just seems we get one step forward and then two steps back."
Brown says Biden's economic recovery plan is geared towards helping small businesses and the middle class.
Republicans in Ohio say President Donald Trump had a good economic record before the pandemic, pointing to tax cuts and the USMCA trade deal.
