Will Sherrod Brown Keep Ohio in the 2018 Senate Race?

Postby Oldenfranck » Sun Mar 26, 2017 6:22 pm

I think he will. He has over 3.1 million dollars in his war chest, having raised over half a million alone from from the start of october to the end of december in 2016. He also has a big name in the state, and will be running for a third consequetive time. He also has, and has spent more than double the money that he did and had at the same time in 2011, in which he won against state treasurer Josh Mandel 51-45. There are no doubts that Brown will win his primary with no problems, and get this, Josh Mandel is running against Brown AGAIN. He will win his primary with no problems, since he is up against a bunch of no-names, and The only big name that would have won the republican primaries, and taken down Brown, John Kasich, today said this: "I'm not really interested in running for political office again,". Wow! That basically spells a victory for Sherrod Brown! Brown will win with even a bigger margin of victory than last time, because he has more money, more incumbent and name status, will be running in a backlash year against republicans in 2018, AND will be running against a perennial candidate! NO one likes Perennial candidates! Think Ross Perot, John Raese, Henning Blomen, etc. Imagine if Hillary Clinton were to run again in 2020! That is how cringeworthy this is. All This I think will lead to a Brown victory in 2018.

If Trump is unpopular in 2018, yes.

The Democrats will not likely take the Senate back in 2018, but even so, it is too early to speculate.

I think Sherrod Brown will keep his Ohio seat. If he does, he could speculate about running for the presidency.

Kasich would probably be able to beat him. Otherwise, Brown is safe. Early predictions though, I'd say It's extremely unlikely that Dems win the senate. There's two competitive Republican held seats. Assuming they win both, and don't lose any of their own, Republicans still control the senate thanks to Pence.

Hillary had a huge war chest too.

A lesson from 2017 is that it takes more than money these days to win an election.

It takes word of mouth, and social media savvy.

Brown has already beaten Mandel once, outperforming Obama at the same time. Brown is popular, and has exactly the right kind of left populist flair that the Dems need in the era of Trump. He has a large war chest, and a history of winning in the state. Add to all of this the fact that it is a midterm with a (currently unpopular) Republican president. Mandel can't be discounted, but Brown absolutely has the advantage, and he should win.
