WASHINGTON -- The office of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, is touting his effort in brokering a deal between Democrats and Republicans to strengthen sanctions against Russia.

The measure, which passed the Senate on Wednesday, came after a deal was reached late Monday night on the issue.

Brown, the ranking Democrat of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, announced an agreement with U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, the chair of the Senate Banking Committee in May.
