A candidate forum in Akron Thursday featuring three major Republican U.S. Senate candidates aiming to unseat Democrat incumbent Sherrod Brown seemed almost old-fashioned.

There were no Make America Great Again hats, no T-shirts, no banners waving and no protests. 

This candidate forum, organized by the Greater Akron Chamber, was at Portage Country Club, where the business community gathered quietly in suits, blazers and heels to find out what Matt Dolan, Frank LaRose and Bernie Moreno would each do to help local business thrive. 

Matthew Akers, associate director of the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at the University of Akron, moderated the hour-long discussion.
