Ohio Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher (D) announced the backing of Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) for his Senate campaign on Monday.

Expect Fisher to continue to roll out endorsements like this, as his side tries to squeeze underfunded Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner out of the Democratic primary.

"I am honored to have Congressman Tim Ryan's support and look forward to working side-by-side with him in Washington to rebuild our middle class and create good-paying jobs in the Mahoning Valley and across Ohio," Fisher said.

Ryan is the second member of Congress from Ohio to endorse Fisher.

Fisher also has the endorsements of Gov. Ted Strickland (D), Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory (D), Ohio's United Auto Workers and the Ohio Teamsters.
