Sen: New Brown (D) TV Ad Hammers DeWine (R) on Trade and Outsourcing

The ad highlights the fact that Brown has led the fight in Congress to stop unfair trade agreements that outsource U.S. jobs overseas. Ohio has lost more than 195,000 manufacturing jobs since 2001. DeWine has taken more than $1 million from companies that outsourced U.S. jobs and voted for special tax breaks for companies sending those jobs overseas. He supported both the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Central American Free Trade Agreement, as well as Permanent Normalized Trade Relations with China.
