Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown announced Thursday that he will not pursue the Democratic nomination in 2020. His decision followed a recently completed 'Dignity of Work' tour of several states that have early primary and caucus dates.
Brown is the fifth Democrat to take a pass on 2020 in recent days. The others are 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon and former Attorney General Eric Holder.
