Sen. Brown, Gov. Kasich hint at possible 2020 presidential run

Local News

Senator Sherrod Brown and his wife, Connie Shultz, hinted earlier this week about a possible presidential run in 2020.

Brown told NBC4’s Colleen Marshall in a recent interview that he has yet to make a decision. He said he likely won’t decide for another couple months.

“Whether I run or not, I want the Democratic nominee to be talking about the dignity of work, the value of work. Fundamentally, if you work hard in this society you ought to be able to get ahead. Far too many workers don’t,” Brown said.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich also sparked rumors that he may be planning another run for the White House.

He spent the day in New Hampshire where traditionally the first presidential primary is held.

“I have no idea what I’m going to do in 2020,” Kasich said.

He said he’s trying to finish 2019 and go into 2019 with new life.

“What I don’t want to do is try to go back to it again and diminish my voice by coming here and getting the beans beaten out of me and end up with 17 percent of the voite. I don’t want to do that. I’m not interested in that,” Kasich said.

Two years ago, Kasich finished second to Donald Trump in New Hampshire’s Republican primary.
