Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown Will Not Run for President in 2020

Sen. Sherrod Brown Announces He Will Not Be Running For President in 2020

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced Thursday that he will not be joining the crowded field of Democrats running for president in 2020.

Brown said on Thursday that he would continue to listen to those concerns from voters and pledged to "keep calling out Donald Trump and his phony populism". "After Trump claimed in November that Brown was partly to blame for General Motors' decision to close a plant in Lordstown, Ohio, Brown responded on Twitter, "@realDonaldTrump, I'll compare my record standing up for Ohio & American workers to yours any day". He recently finished his tour of the early-primary states - Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and SC - and as recently as the weekend hinted that he was going to jump in. That's why I'm confident it will continue to be a focus for Democrats in 2020. Brown's victory was powered by strong support in many blue-collar areas of the state where Trump had prevailed.

My goal for our tour was to make the dignity of work the centerpiece of the Democrats' 2020 campaign because I believe that's the way to beat Donald Trump, and it's the way we should govern.

Heavy snow expected to fall Saturday

Brown had emerged as a prospective strong challenger to Republican President Donald Trump after his solid re-election in November in a state Trump carried by almost 11 points in 2016.

Three other possible Democratic contenders - former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of OR - also announced this week that they would not run.

"I will keep fighting for all workers across the country".

Brown is the third Democrat considering a presidential campaign to decide against it this week.

"We're doing a dignity of work listening tour", Brown told CNN about the tour. He'd also gotten some momentum in the Senate for a child-care subsidy, and he emphasized that Senate work in his decision not to run for president.
