Sherrod Brown and Ohio Democrats have refused to denounce Hillary Clinton’s absurd statements last week, which demeaned Ohio voters and reminded us exactly “what happened” in the 2016 election.
Will Ohio Democrats break their silence, or should Ohio voters assume that they agree with Hillary?
Last week Hillary Clinton asserted that people who live in the middle of the country (Ohioans) were attracted to a “backwards” campaign, and implied their votes were motivated by racism and sexism:
“If you look at the map of the United States there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won. I win the coasts, I win you know Illinois and Minnesota places like that, but what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign ‘Make America Great Again’ was looking backwards.”
“You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs, you don’t want it, you know, see that Indian Americans succeeding more than you are. Whatever your problem is I’m gonna solve it.”
Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Endorsed Clinton For President In 2015.
“Hillary Clinton picked up an endorsement Tuesday from a prominent Senate liberal, Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, giving her the backing of top elected Democrats in each of the three biggest general election swing states.” (Gabriel Debenedetti, “Sherrod Brown Endorses Hillary Clinton,” Politico , 10/27/15)
Brown Said That He Trusts Clinton To “Fight For Children And Families,” “Fight For Women’s Health,” And “Fight For Civil Rights.”
“I trust Secretary Clinton to fight for children and families,” the Democratic Ohio senator said Monday. “I trust Secretary Clinton to fight for women’s health, I trust Secretary Clinton, as her speech today certainly emphasized at the NAACP, to fight for civil rights.” (Bianca Padró Ocasoo, “Sherrod Brown: ‘I Trust’ Hillary Clinton,” Politico , 7/18/18)
