Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown said he’s still uncertain about a possible presidential bid in 2020. In an interview Sunday, the Ohio senator said he isn’t sure if he’s the best Democrat candidate to challenge President Trump in 2020.
Senator Brown went on to say he’s enjoyed significant support for his possible presidential run.
The senator has floated his possible 2020 campaign for weeks now after positioning himself as a “moderate” Democrat seeking to protect the American working class.
Brown also said if he runs for president, he would campaign on his agenda of “dignity of work.”
“It’s not just a message that works in the industrial Midwest, the states that we need to beat President Trump, it’s also a message for the X-ray technician in Oakland and a construction worker in Augusta, Maine — it’s the respect and dignity of work matters to this country,” he stated.
Brown also suggested he could work with both parties to deliver better tax and trade policies as well as health care and consumer protections.
