State Treasurer Josh Mandel and five other Republicans will face off in this year's Ohio GOP primary for U.S. Senate.
The state's top elections official on Thursday announced the list of Senate contenders who will appear on the March 6 primary ballots.
The winner of the 6-way Republican contest would likely face incumbent U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, in November in one of the nation's most closely watched Senate races.
Democrat Mark McGinnis is listed as a write-in candidate challenging Brown.
Ohio U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown has offered his help to end the more than month-old lockout at a Northwest Ohio tire plant.
Multiple news outlets report the Democrat gave a pep talk Monday to Cooper Tire workers gathered at a packed union hall in Findlay.
Brown says he knows the union members are eager to get back to work.
Cooper Tire & Rubber is based in Findlay. In late November it locked out more than 1,000 union members at a factory in its hometown after workers voted down a tentative three-year contract.
