Brown campaign cancels news conference after group announces protest

The re-election campaign for U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown canceled a news conference meant to highlight his environmental record just hours after a group invited to support the senator said it would picket instead of endorse Mr. Brown.

The event was scheduled for Wednesday at Middlegrounds Metropark with Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz and environmental groups expected to be in attendance, as well as representatives from Mr. Brown’s campaign. The senator was in Washington, D.C.

Middlegrounds is on the banks of the Maumee River, which last year saw the kind of toxic algal bloom that has plagued Lake Erie.

Mr. Kapszukiewicz, northwest Ohio leaders, and environmental advocates “will make the case for why Sherrod is the only Senate candidate Ohioans can trust to fight for clean water and a safe environment,” the Brown campaign said in a news release.
