Ohio's governor and one of its two U.S. senators say the military shouldn't be sent into their home state as police brutality protests continue. 

Mike DeWine and Rob Portman, both Republicans, say it should be up to mayors and state leaders to decide what's needed to restore order. Portman says the National Guard can handle Ohio's situation. President Trump has vowed to send the military into states to quell protests if state authorities don't restore order.
