For the third consecutive year, Brown attended the annual Ohio College and University Presidents' Conference on Tuesday in Washington, D.C., hosted by Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.

"It's a very useful conference, and I plan to attend if he does this again next year. Every year, we seem to be growing in strength," Paul said.
