Senate Democrats Outline Strategy To Take Senate Seats

Senate Democrats are targeting four Republican-held seats in an attempt to gain electoral ground in 2016.

Zac Kramer, executive director of the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus, said in an interview that Senate Districts 2, 16, 18 and 24 are top priorities for the party in the next election cycle.

"We're going to try to have all of (the races) filled, but our priority is those," Mr. Kramer said.
