[Ed. – Who knew the senator, who claimed that ‘generally white males’ have carried out terror attacks in the U.S. since 9/11, was capable of ‘seriously thinking about’ anything?]
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), considered a potential candidate for president in 2020, said Sunday that he is “seriously thinking” about making a bid for the Democratic nomination.
Brown said during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” that he has been “overwhelmed by the number of people from around the country that have said we should think about doing this.”
“We’re seriously thinking about it. We’re seriously talking about it with family, with friends and with political allies who have come to me about this,” he added.
Brown, who was reelected to the Senate earlier his month, added that he hopes his message of “the dignity of work” is a narrative among Democrats regardless of whether he runs.
Brown, who has previously pushed that message while campaigning, noted that President Trump “won the industrial midwest” in 2016.
“To turn that around, I hope that candidates running in the Democratic primary talk about the dignity of work, talk about respecting work, talk about when you work hard and play by the rules, you ought to be able to get ahead,” he said.
