Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) "has landed the endorsement of the United Auto Workers a year after Ohio Democrats saw a series of labor unions abandon" former Gov. Ted Strickland (D) for Sen. Rob Portman (R) in the Senate race.

"The UAW's backing of Brown is hardly a surprise. Brown and labor are longtime allies."

"The UAW's support sets up Brown for a repeat showdown with" state Treasurer Josh Mandel (R) "on the issue for the 2008 auto industry bailout. Brown supported the rescue and Mandel says he would have opposed it." (AP)
