Students looking to get involved and show their support for Sen. Sherrod Brown have a new group to join:  Students for Sherrod:

....Sherrod Brown is fighting every day to ensure that a quality affordable education is available to Ohio’s students. As Senator, Sherrod Brown voted for the largest increase in federal aid since the G.I. Bill, as well as the Post-9/11 GI Bill to greatly expand educational opportunities for post-9/11 veterans in Ohio. Sen. Brown has introduced legislation to provide student loan relief to 100,000 Ohioans and fought against cuts to Pell grants for higher education. Sen. Brown also proposed legislation that would create thousands of Ohio jobs by funding renovations and improvements for Ohio schools, and has supported legislation to save teacher jobs across the state. It’s clear that when it comes to Ohio’s students, there’s no greater champion in Congress than Sherrod Brown.

The launch of “Students for Sherrod” will be accompanied by a new Facebook page and a section of the web site to keep students up-to-date on campaign issues and news. Ohio students can join the Facebook page by clicking HERE.

Just a reminder---- those candidates like Josh Mandel that support the Paul Ryan budget also support cuts to college loans and Pell grants.  A vote for Mandel is a vote to cut student financial aid.
