Sherrod Completes Day 3 Of “Road To Ohio Jobs Tour” After Stops In Cleveland, Lorain, And Toledo

Seven Day Caravan Tour Of Made-in-Ohio Chevy Cruzes and Jeeps Continues Tomorrow

Senator Sherrod Brown continued his “Road To Ohio Jobs Tour” spending Day Three in Cleveland, Lorain and Toledo today.

Brown held a press conference in Cleveland at USW Local 979 adjacent to ArcelorMittal which makes steel for autos, including the Chevy Cruze, to talk about the positive effects of the auto rescue up and down the supply chain and his bill toprotect Ohio jobs by getting tough on China.

“American workers are the best in the world, and nowhere is that more true than in Ohio. But right now our playing field isn’t level,” Brown said. “That’s why I brought Democrats and Republicans together to pass tariffs on China, and that’s why I led passage in the Senate of the largest bipartisan jobs bill of last, a bill that would create thousands of Ohio jobs by punishing China when it cheats trade laws by manipulating its currency.

After stopping in Cleveland, Sherrod enjoyed the annual Lorain County Spaghetti Dinner where he ate with and spoke tomore than 300 activists and supporters.

Following the spaghetti dinner, Sherrod and the “Road To Ohio Jobs Tour” caravan stopped in Toledo to pick up several made-in-Ohio Jeeps to add to the caravan. The caravan added Jeep Wranglers, which are assembled in Toledo.

“These last few days, I’ve traveled across the state, in a fleet of Chevy Cruze vehicles and now I’m thrilled to add Ohio-made Jeeps to the caravan,” Brown said. “Before the auto rescue, only 55 percent of the parts in Chrysler’s Jeep Wrangler were made in America. Today 70 percent of the Jeep Wrangler is American-made – with many parts made in Ohio. The glass is made in Crestline, the steering column in Perrysburg, the seats in Northwood, the hard top in Carey, and cargo components in Holmesville.”

The “Road To Ohio Jobs Tour” will take Sherrod to every corner of Ohio, covering more than 2,100 miles and 25 cities totalk about his work to fight for middle class jobs and his plans to continue growing the economy. The tour will travel in a caravan of made-in-Ohio Chevy Cruzes and Jeeps to highlight the importance of the auto rescue for Ohio’s economy and manufacturing comeback.
