Can a Senate flip to GOP with Trump's help?

Trump and Renacci (Ohio race)An Ohio-based tea party activist is hopeful that voters in The Buckeye State will send a liberal U.S. senator back home.

Republican Congressman Jim Renacci (pictured at right,) who won last month's GOP primary, is challenging Democrat Sherrod Brown but so far is trailing the incumbent in polling.

Polling by RealClearPolitics shows Sherrod enjoying a double-digit lead over Renacci but the all-politics website, in its analysis of the Senate race, suggests Sherrod is "probably too liberal" for Ohio but is a "skilled politician" in a state that went for Donald Trump.

Tom Zawistowski, executive director of the Portage County Tea Party, says Brown will be strong in his re-election bid but Renacci has the backing of Trump, who visited Ohio three times to support him during the GOP primary.

"And I think we'll see a lot of visits by President Trump as the General Election comes nearer to Ohio," Zawistowski tells OneNewsNow.

The tea party leader says Brown cannot depend on the supposed "blue wave" of grass-roots Democratic voters who were predicted to help sweep Democrats into office and flip Congress in November.   

"Despite these claims of a blue wave, what we saw here in Ohio was that the Democrats were outvoted in the primary by 160,000," says the tea party leader. "That was very interesting because they kept telling us how energized they were."
