'Huge problem': Vulnerable Dem senator ripped after interview resurfaces touting resemblance to Biden

Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown is facing criticism both online and from his political opponents for a resurfaced clip in which he explains that President Biden's policies are “not much different” from his own.

“I've known him well enough for decades now, I think he'll predictably fight for workers, he'll be an attractive presence in Ohio,” Brown said. told WKYC Channel 3 during an interview in January 2021, shortly before Biden's inauguration.

“I know he lost Ohio. Ohio, as you point out Stephanie, is increasingly difficult for a Democrat to win, but I only won decisively here a few years ago. Joe Biden's politics now aren't much different from mine and I think people will get that. to increasingly appreciate the work he does to help people get jobs, to increase wages, to provide health care and retirement benefits to people and the small businesses to provide those jobs more and more and that will matter .”

The resurfaced excerpt from the interview from three years ago sparked criticism from many conservatives in light of Brown's widely watched re-election campaign in a state in which then-President Trump won by 8 points in 2020, which many consider one of the best chances ever the Republicans have to re-elect. – take control of the Senate in November.

“And that's a huge problem,” says conservative communicator Steve Guest posted on X together with the clip.

“Sherrod is going to spend the next six months lying to Ohio voters and pretending he doesn't vote with Biden almost 100% of the time,” Donald Trump Jr. said. posted on X. “Don't fall for his lies!”

A spokesperson for businessman Bernie Moreno, Brown's Republican opponent in November, told Fox News Digital: “No matter how hard he tries, Sherrod Brown cannot run away from his reputation as a rubber stamp for Joe Biden's disastrous left-wing agenda. ”

“By voting with Biden 99% of the time, Brown helped create record inflation, a war on American energy, and an unprecedented invasion of our southern border. In November, Ohioans will retire Biden and Brown and send new leadership to DC”

Philip Letsou, spokesperson for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told Fox News Digital: “Sherrod Brown is right, there is no difference at all between him and Joe Biden.”

“That's why Brown votes with Biden 99% of the time, working hand in hand to boost inflation with massive spending, open the southern border and flood the country with Chinese fentanyl,” Letsou added to it.

Brown's race is one of four Senate races, along with Montana, Arizona and Nevada, that the Cook Political Report considers a “toss-up.” Most political analysts believe that President Biden's record and low approval ratings will play a major role in each of those races.

“Sherrod works for Ohio, which is why he stood up to presidents of both parties to block bad trade deals, worked with Republicans to ensure Border Patrol agents and law enforcement have the resources they need, and demanded that the Biden administration would crack down on Chinese solar products that undercut Ohio manufacturers,” Matt Keyes, spokesperson for Friends of Sherrod Brown, told Fox News Digital.

The campaign pointed to several examples in which Brown took different policy positions than Biden's, including opposing the expiration of Title 42, calling for Biden to ban Chinese electric vehicles and opposing Biden's suspension of tariffs on Chinese solar energy.
