Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown Announces He Will NOT Run for President

[image-1] Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown announced today that he will not seek the Democratic nomination for President in 2020.

But he said that the best place for him to continue fighting for American workers, against the "phony populism" of Donald Trump, is in the Senate.

Brown appeared alongside other Democratic hopefuls on the cover of TIME Magazine last month, and leaves a field brimming with challengers who, on the whole, are embracing more progressive platforms than in 2016. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Elizabeth Warren and others have all announced their candidacies.
