  1. It is unfortunate that you support a Senator who is a career politician and has done more to chase away jobs and home owners from Ohio with your endorsement of Sherrod Brown. Playing the middle here is disingenuous to your fellow associates in Ohio, especially since Senators like Sherrod Brown stuck his head in the sand when warnings went out about pushing legislation for irresponsible lending. A suggestion is to look at their voting records, and not the party or their tenure in office.

      Thank you for sharing your opinion. As you know, a process is in place and utilized to determine the best candidate to represent the REALTOR® Party. RPAC trustees at the local, state and federal levels take into consideration many different factors including voting record, as well as other legislative actions the incumbent has taken.
      If an incumbent has been supportive of REALTOR® issues, RPAC should support him/her for re-election. This is the case for Sherrod Brown. He has been a REALTOR® champion since his days in the U.S. House, when he was one of the original sponsors of our legislation to keep banks from engaging in real estate brokerage. He has also been the lead sponsor on almost every major piece of housing legislation in the U.S. Senate over the past 3 – 4 years including bills to expedite short sales, extend mortgage cancellation tax relief, the home buyer tax credit, FHA reform and helped with the extension of loan limits for high cost areas. Please feel free to contact our Government Affairs Director if you have any additional concerns at (216) 901-0130.
