Sen. Brown prepares pitch to keep GM in town

By  | 

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- Ohio's senators will meet with General Motor's C.E.O. Wednesday in a bid to save jobs at the Lordstown Assembly plant.

The plant employs nearly 3,000 workers. Sales for car produced at the plant -- the Chevrolet Cruze -- are down 25 percent since this time last year. Company spokespeople say that's what led to the decision to close the plant by the end of 2019.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) will try to convince GM CEO Mary Barra to reverse course.

Tuesday, we asked him about his pitch. You can hear what he had to say by watching the video above.
