COLUMBUS, Ohio — Candidates in Ohio's U.S. Senate campaign have argued in a second debate over similarly different positions on taxes, immigration, gun control, climate change and health care Saturday night.

Two-term Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown and Republican U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci met at WOSU-TV on the Ohio State University campus in Columbus.

Brown once again targeted Renacci for votes to eliminate the federal health care act which would have ended coverage for preexisting conditions.

Renacci said the health care law is too expensive, but denied opposing preexisting conditions.

Renacci said he supports clean air and water but also growing Ohio's coal and gas industries. Brown said Congress is too beholden to the fossil fuel industry to do anything about climate change.

Renacci has aligned himself during the campaign with President Donald Trump, who urged Renacci to enter the Senate race after state Treasurer Josh Mandel dropped out because of his wife's health.

Brown is a longtime fixture in Ohio politics and is viewed as a potential candidate for the 2020 presidential ticket.

A third debate is planned Oct. 26. at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
