YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-13 Ohio, says awarding trade promotion authority, commonly known as "fast track," to President Barack Obama increases the risk of this country negotiating international trade agreements that are bad for American workers and middle-class families.
"I know that the president has good intentions," Ryan said Wednesday during a conference call with reporters. "But we believe that as some of these big corporations get into these countries, they’re going to take advantage of the deal to send more of our jobs overseas."
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- President Obama’s critics say he did not appear to recognize the new political reality in Washington last night during his first State of the Union Address before a Congress now controlled by Republicans.
That new reality was made apparent to Obama when his acknowledgement that he had “no more campaigns to run” was met with applause.
“I know because I’ve won both of them,” he retorted, a reminder to opponents that he remains in office despite the results of the 2014 midterms.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- New York magazine Monday published a story on what it calls Tim Ryan’s “holistic congressional practice,” detailing his advocacy of the meditative practice of mindfulness and more recently food policy.

LAKE MILTON, Ohio -- Ralph T. Meacham acknowledges that he lacked the political connections that many in Mahoning County see as essential to even consider a run for elective office.
Moreover, Meacham says, before last summer, he knew virtually no one in the leadership of the county Republican Party, which hadn’t run a successful candidate for a nonjudicial county seat since Gary Van Brocklin was elected prosecutor in 1984.
WARREN, Ohio -- U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan expects to decide in the next six to eight weeks whether he will run for the seat held by U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, a Republican.
