Democratic stalwart Sherrod Brown decides against 2020 presidential run

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says he won't run for president after making an exploratory swing through early-voting states. He also said he "can be most effective" by remaining in the Senate. Brown had flirted with a possible presidential run in the months since he was re-elected to the Senate in November.

"I fight best when I bring joy to the battle", he told home-state reporters.

Brown, a Cleveland Democrat, announced Thursday that he has "decided the best place for me to continue fighting for OH and for the dignity of workers across the country, all workers, is to stay in the U.S. Senate". Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Attorney General Eric Holder and Oregon Sen.

"I will keep calling out Donald Trump and his phony populism", Brown said in an initial statement.

The 66-year-old Left-leaning populist has always been considered an ideal candidate to take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 election but said in a statement that he believes he can do more to fight Trump in the Senate.

In potential trade for Marcus Gilbert, Cardinals would help offensive line
Humphries to form a competent tackle duo, which is saying a lot given the state of the offensive line a year ago. After drafting Chuk Okorafor last offseason, Pittsburgh keeps two right tackles on the roster moving into 2019.

Brown was considered in 2016 by Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, as a vice presidential running mate, but she opted for U.S. Sen.

Brown, a liberal populist who has won three terms in OH, a state that has been trending Republican in recent years, would have offered Democrats a candidate that could reconnect with voters in the Midwest.

Brown, who declined on Thursday to endorse any of the Democratic candidates, has been outspoken about the idea that a progressive can win the 2020 election as long as they focus on the right progressive issues.

Brown's comfort in relating to Midwestern, working-class voters is a key element in the political appeal of Biden, who is seen as leaning heavily toward running. He said has never aspired to be president and, in the end, decided he could do the most good in the Senate. Bernie Sanders. In his statement, Brown said he he thought his message was being picked up by other candidates.
