PHILADELPHIA – Ohio's senior senator, Sherrod Brown, said Wednesday morning he was among those vetted by the Hillary Clinton campaign to become her running mate, but he says he's not disappointed at being passed over.

Protests at the DNC have been loud and disruptive at times, but as in Cleveland, they've been peaceful.

The city of Cincinnati released a much anticipated audit Tuesday of the Cincinnati Parks Board, the city's parks department and the parks foundation.

City Manager Harry Black initiated the review last October at the request of Mayor John Cranley.  The audit was requested as city voters were being asked to approve a one mill property tax levy to support the parks.  That levy was ultimately defeated by a two-to-one margin.

Great Parks of Hamilton County will ask taxpayers to approve a $9.45 levy increase this fall.

The parks board approved a 1 mill replacement levy Tuesday afternoon.

There have been some key endorsements in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race during the past couple of days.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes will address the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night and provide a personal endorsement for Hillary Clinton.

Grimes, whose family has close ties to the Clintons, said she would talk less about the presumptive nominee’s policies and “more about the soul of the person that I have known for the better part of my life for over 20 years.”

Clinton stumped for Grimes’ during the 2014 Senate race that was ultimately won by Sen. Mitch McConnell.

The lawsuit to keep Ohio from removing voters from its rolls continues in court tomorrow.
