US Sen. Sherrod Brown decides against a 2020 presidential run

HENDERSON NEVADA- FEBRUARY 23 U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown speaks at the Lovelady Brewing Company as part of the Nevada Democratic Party's lecture series

Brown, Ohio's senior U.S. Senator, said he made his decision a couple of days ago.

Connie Schultz [Brown's wife] and I have spent the last few months traveling around the country to make dignity of work a centerpiece of Democrats' 2020 campaign, and we are so grateful to everyone who has welcomed us into their communities and into their lives. "And I find that joy fighting for OH in the Senate".

Brown, who was re-elected to the Senate to a third six-year term last year, had recently visited several early primary/caucus states including Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and SC.

Brown, a liberal with strong ties to the labor movement, had not registered significant support in most opinion polls of a Democratic field that includes better-known fellow senators such as Kamala Harris of California, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of MA.

Real Madrid Knocked Out Of The Champions League By Ajax
Ajax is the biggest club in the Netherlands and spend plenty on players, but not quite like Real Madrid does, so we'll allow it. There were individuals who seemed so insecure on Tuesday, as if transfixed to the Dutch festival taking place in the stands.

Brown's decision not to run for president in 2020 comes on the heels of some others who were thought to be contenders. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced he would not join an already crowded Democratic field, as did Oregon Sen. And some Democrats believed he could appeal to both the party's left-leaning base and Trump voters because of similar positions to the president on issues like trade.

"Donald Trump has used his phony populism to divide Americans and demonize immigrants", Brown said in January, as he began his four-state "Dignity of Work" tour.

But the Ohio Democrat said he still plans to play an active role in 2020 to help keep the issue of workers' rights at the forefront of the presidential campaign. Thank you for your support as I ran for re-election in OH, and thank you for your support as we traveled the country on the Dignity of Work tour. "The best place for me to make that fight is in the United States Senate", Brown said in a statement issued Thursday afternoon. So, I will not run for President in 2020.

"An outspoken progressive can win - and win decisively - in the heartland", he said during his tour.
