Sen. Sherrod Brown
This race was a toss-up as recently as a month ago. Congratulations to Sherrod Brown, a true populist who will be the only Senator in the country to openly challenge the wisdom of our free trade agreeements.
There was a lot of warfare internally in the progressive blogosphere when Paul Hackett was forced out of this race. What could have been a disaster was averted because Hackett was a gentleman and Brown was a really solid progressive candidate.
The fact that Bernie Sanders and Sherrod Brown are in the Senate is a sea change.
