CLEVELAND, OH — Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) issued the following statement after General Motors sold its Lordstown plant to Lordstown Motors Corp. this week. 

“GM workers in Lordstown drove the success of the company for decades. I’m disappointed GM unilaterally decided not to bring a new product to Lordstown. That’s their loss and the Mahoning Valley deserved better.

“Looking ahead, I want Lordstown Motors Corp. to succeed. The best way for the company to do that is to follow through on their commitment to work closely with the UAW and its workers, who are among the best in the world at what they do.”
