A Democratic U.S. senator who’s in his fifth decade of Ohio politics has been elected to a third term.
    
Sherrod Brown on Tuesday defeated fourth-term U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, who dropped a governor’s bid to run for Senate at Trump’s urging.
    
The 65-year-old Brown won his first election to the state’s House in 1974 and unseated Republican Sen. Mike DeWine in 2006. With a history of blue-collar appeal and union support, Brown has backed Trump moves on steel tariffs and renegotiating trade agreements.
    
The 59-year-old Renacci, a businessman, called Brown a liberal out of touch with Ohio values.
