Senator Sherrod Brown announces he will not run for President in 2020

Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown of OH said on Thursday he would not enter the 2020 US presidential race, but would work to help the party recapture the White House and battle Republican President Donald Trump's "phony populism". "And I find that joy fighting for OH in the Senate".

"We've seen candidates begin taking up the dignity of work fight, and we have seen voters across the country demanding it", Brown said in a statement. "So that's where I can be most effective".

Brown said on November 12, 2018, less than a week after winning his third term to the Senate, that he was considering a presidential run.

He had been touting his Midwest roots at a time when Democrats are looking to win back working-class voters in the Rust Belt that flipped to President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

Brown said he will continue to call out President Donald Trump's "phony populism" from his perch in the Senate and will "do everything I can to elect a Democratic president and a Democratic Senate in 2020".

Brown, a staple in OH politics who has served in the Senate since 2007, was easily reelected to the upper chamber in the 2018 midterms.

Brown had been traveling to some early primary states to test his appeal to the party's voting base, saying his focus on "the dignity of work" while not "caving to Wall Street" could capture Trump voters and Democrats alike.

So as I think about the work we have left to do - from making sure truck drivers and coal miners get the retirement they earned, to combating addiction, to helping the workers who were laid off in Lordstown - I am convinced the best place for me to make that fight is in the Senate. Jeff Merkley all announced recently that they will not run for President.

"In that sense, it was mission accomplished", Brown said. "It is how we beat Trump, and it is how we should govern", he said.

There are several Democrats who have already announced their plans to run for president, including U.S. Sens.

However, Brown declined to endorse other progressive initiatives popular among Democratic candidates, such as the "Green New Deal", "Medicare for All" and marijuana legalization. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Sen.

Brown, a fierce populist, won reelection in OH last fall even as every other Democratic statewide candidate fell far short, and has a proven track record of winning white working-class voters and carrying a Midwestern state that has moved hard towards the GOP in recent years.
