AKRON, Ohio (WJW) – Ohio’s U.S. Rep. for the 13th District, Congressman Tim Ryan, announced he is running for the U.S. Senate Monday.
“I’m running for U.S. Senate to fight like hell to cut workers in on the deal,” he says in a press release.
He echoed the statement in a press conference at the Trumbull County Courthouse.
The campaign video shows him talking to his son about workers losing their jobs and taking a tour of places he grew up in Ohio.
“Ohioans are working harder than ever, they’re doing everything right, and they’re still falling behind. Countries all over the world are investing billions in infrastructure, education, health care, and their workforce to out-compete American businesses and workers. Our workers need a game plan to level the playing field and bring jobs home to Ohio.”
Ohio’s junior Sen. Rob Portman announced in January that he would not seek re-election.
The election for his seat will be held on November 8, 2022.
