Sherrod Brown is going on tour to the first four early presidential states

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Sen. Sherrod Brown will travel to Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, the latest move in a possible run for president in 2020.

In a conference call with reporters Tuesday night before announcing the trip nationally on MSNBC, Brown said his early-state jaunt will begin Jan. 30 in Cleveland. His first stop will be Jan. 31 in Iowa, with the other early-primary season states following over the course of February.

Brown is considering jumping into a likely crowded Democratic primary field to unseat Republican President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The early-state trip – which Brown coined the “Dignity of Work” Tour – will let Brown see if his populist, progressive message works on a national level.

“Some national Democrats, they’ve created this sort of binary choice that you speak to the progressive base or you talk to working class voters of all races,” Brown said. “I don’t think it’s an either or. I think you do both. That’s how you win in the heartland. That’s how we won in Ohio. That’s what I hope the narrative is for all the presidential candidates on the Democratic side.”
