Sherrod Brown says he has no interest in 2020 presidential bid

The Ohio Democrat spoke Tuesday at the Center for American Progress in Washington, an event whose speakers included Democratic Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, all of whom who are talking about running for president.

The large turnout, which also included such presidential possibilities as Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont, and Julian Castro, who served as secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Obama administration, prompted reporters to dub it the first real gathering of presidential hopefuls.

1. Good to hear, though he would make a great president

he does a good job as senator in Ohio and we need someone on our side.
