References[edit]

I have added citations for most of the unsourced information. Ideally I would like to find a better source for his abortion voting record, but it will do for now. Tytrain (talk) 21:10, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

I tagged the article as "one source." Most of the biography and Ohio Senate history comes almost word-for-word from his official website. Although much of the information is NPOV and appropriate, it would be better to have some additional sources. I'll tweak some of the POV phrases to get them more neutral. Any help finding sources would be appreciated. Tytrain (talk) 22:42, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

The article has been reverted by a bot to this version to remove User:CAFESDO's contributions as they have a history of extensive copyright violation and so it is assumed that all of their major contributions are copyright violations. VWBot (talk) 12:21, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
The contributions in question of this article do not appear to be copyright violations at all. I have restored this changes. Tytrain (talk) 15:09, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
Please do not restore material before ensuring that it is not a copyright violation. In this case the content added to the article says:

Jordan has been subject to speculation about a possible 2012 U.S. Senate race aimed at unseating Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, who will seek a second term.

and the source says:

Jordan, who was re-elected on Tuesday, has been the subject of speculation about a possible 2012 U.S. Senate race aimed at unseating U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, who is expected to seek a second term.

Accordingly, I have re-removed the content. The facts can be used, but must be rewritten from scratch in order to avoid creating a close paraphrase copyright violation. VernoWhitney (talk) 01:22, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
