Brown hosted a similar event in Columbus last fall with Facebook, and said his other efforts to assist OH businesses have included bipartisan legislation to promote USA manufacturing and pushes for trade enforcement actions to protect OH jobs.

The four-term congressman had the endorsement of the GOP delegation and President Donald, who carried OH by 8 points in 2016. "Generally, if you look at past history, we feel Trump is a net positive in OH". "Go out and help Jim", the president said, to applause from those in the audience. "If Brown were to lose, that probably would mean Democrats were also getting swept in all the statewide races, which would lead one to question - under what circumstances Democrats could win in OH again".
