Ohio Democrats are trying to stir up support for a future challenger against U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), whose vote for new U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett sparked an online fundraiser.
With seven weeks minus one day to go, Democratic first-time candidate Kate Schroder seems poised to climb to the summit of one of the steepest hills in Southwest Ohio politics – taking down long-time GOP congressman Steve Chabot.

Cincinnati's Mauritanian community wants Congress to address human rights issues in their native country. Community advocates rallied Monday to raise awareness of issues going on in the West African country.
