Tim Ryan appealing to working class in presidential run: ‘I know they feel left out, but I also know their hopes’


Fairfield, Iowa — Tim Ryan is running for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president and has a challenging road.

As a congressman from Ohio, he doesn’t have a national name or following, so virtually everyone he meets while campaigning has no idea who he is. Iowa Democrats go into his campaign events with open minds, but it’s up to him to win them over.

In a recent event at the home of retired archaeologist Stan Plum in Fairfield, Iowa, Ryan did just that, impressing many there with his passionate message of reinvigorating America’s middle class.

“We need someone who understands where the economy is going, and has guts and toughness,” he tells them. His voice rising, Ryan says, “We don’t need a savior, we don’t need a superstar, we need a grinder.” Loud applause ensues, filling the Plums’ living room. “And I’m a grinder. I get up every day and I work my rear end off.”
