A candidate for Democrats to think about seriously

Politico -  Sen. Sherrod Brown said Sunday he doesn't know whether he is the best choice to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, but he addressed specific issues related to rural voters in the United States.

Brown won reelection last month in a state Trump won in the 2016 presidential election, while taking a hard line on trade, tax policy, health care and other issues he said impacted rural and blue-collar workers.

"I've heard from a lot of people about taking that on. And it's not just a message that works in the industrial Midwest and in states that we need to beat President Trump. It's also a message for the X-ray technician in Oakland, and the construction worker in Augusta, Maine," Brown said.

"It's the respect and dignity of work matters for this country and ... neither party has paid enough attention to that," he added.
