Senator Bernie Sanders said it best: "We produced, by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party. Our job now is to see that platform implemented by a Democratic Senate."
Answer Bernie’s call and sign up to help us elect a Democratic Senate in November.
Right now, our progressive platform is in danger. The GOP is fighting hard to make sure that Donald Trump becomes president and can work with a Republican Senate.
The Grand Canyon: it is one of America’s greatest treasures. Countless families make the trek every year to marvel at the beauty of nature, its power, and its magnitude. Now, big businesses and anti-environmentalists are looking to intrude upon and pollute the Grand Canyon all in the name of profit.
The debate? Whether or not uranium mines—known to emit toxic chemicals in the air and threaten local water supplies—should be allowed in this national jewel...More
Women are the backbone of our families, our communities, and our economy – and the truth is Ohio’s working families won’t be able to get ahead until Ohio’s women have a fair chance to achieve their full potential.

Support Pro-Choice Democratic Women
43 years after Roe v. Wade secured the right to a safe, legal abortion, access to women’s health care is under extreme threat.
Now more than ever, voters need to elect pro-choice Democratic women who will fight for the reproductive rights of women across the country.
Since 2011, 320 state laws have been enacted restricting a woman’s ability to get an abortion, including 30 laws passed just this year...More
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan released a 57-page plan that, among other things, deals several blows to climate action. It includes a proposal to repeal 'all climate-change regulations under the Clean Air Act,' and claims its purpose is to force some "humility" on federal agencies like the EPA.
When it comes to the climate crisis, we don't need "humility." We need action. And this Congress has not taken one actionable step towards solving the problem—instead, they've blocked every...More
For the first time in American history, we have a national plan to limit the dangerous climate pollution spewing from our fossil fuel-fired power plants – the single largest source of carbon pollution in our nation and one of the largest in the world. We can’t let that slip away.
But dirty energy forces are fighting climate progress through a relentless series of legal attacks. We’re fighting hard to stop this latest senseless effort attacking EPA’s vital limits on climate pollution—...More
Ted Strickland is proud to support the Department of Labor’s new rule expanding overtime pay for the middle class. He knows that middle class Americans work hard for their pay, and it’s only fair that their paycheck should reflect this hard work.
The rule would extend overtime pay protections to 4.2 million workers and raise Americans’ wages by $1.2 billion a year. The rule goes a long way towards fairly compensating millions of Americans.
And no one would benefit more from...More
(***Update: Trump is going after Warren again, but she's standing strong and fighting back. Tell Warren you stand with her!)
Donald Trump, presumptive Republican nominee serial bankruptcy filer, has gone on the attack again, this time launching a series of rancid tweets at Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Looks like he picked a fight with the wrong person:
Elizabeth Warren delivered an extensive, blistering speech last night about Trump...More
For Americans who are living paycheck-to-paycheck, working a job that doesn’t pay a fair wage, or facing crippling student debt, saving for retirement can seem like a fantasy — and that’s one of the reasons why our middle class is feeling squeezed.
It’s even worse when these same Americans are represented by D.C. insiders like Senator Rob Portman who want to raise the retirement age and slash earned benefits.
When you’re still working as a concrete finisher into your 60s,...More
