Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown Won't Run For President”

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown said Thursday he will not run for president in 2020, becoming the latest Democrat to bow out of the White House race.

Brown said he'll continue to call out what he calls Trump's "phony populism".

Brown made the announcement Thursday, saying he believes the Senate is where he can be most effective.

Vincent battled with alcohol and substance abuse, having been arrested for possession of cocaine and bar brawls various times. He was ordered to pay $350,000 in 2000 after physically assaulting an ex-girlfriend and causing her to miscarry their child.

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. "That's why I'm confident it will continue to be a focus for Democrats in 2020, and I plan on making sure that happens", Brown said in a release.

He had been touting his Midwest roots at a time when Democrats are looking to win back working-class voters in the Rust Belt that flipped to President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Brown had flirted with a possible presidential run in the months since he was re-elected to the Senate in November.

Throughout the past couple of months, Sherrod Brown has campaigned in four early primary and caucus states.

But while Brown, 66, has always been a leader of the Democratic party's populist movement, he would have entered the race without the national name recognition of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, or the established legacy of former vice-president Joe Biden. Brown's central campaign issues included a higher minimum wage, increasing the earned income tax benefit, expanding health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, reducing drug prices, and paid family leave.

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.

Brown, like Trump and Sanders, had opposed trade agreements on the grounds that they slighted blue-collar workers in this country and contributed to broad job losses in a swath of states.

Brown had been seen as a strong potential candidate to challenge Trump in 2020, since he's got an image of a populist in a battleground state that Trump won in 2016.

Several Canadians have been detained in China since Meng's arrest and most of Beijing's public ire has been directed at Ottawa. President Donald Trump suggested previous year that the United States could cut a deal with China to secure Meng's release.
