Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), the ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee, is reportedly considering a run for his party’s 2020 presidential nomination.
 
According to a Columbus Dispatch report, Brown claims that he has been hearing “sort of a crescendo” of interest from voters who believe he should pursue the presidency. “We’re hearing it increase, so we’re thinking about it as a result,” he said, adding, “we’re not close to saying yes.”
 
Last week, Brown won re-election to his third Senate term by six percentage points. Nonetheless, he insisted he was not using his re-election to immediately prepare for a national race.
 
“My first mission is to encourage people to start talking about (American workers) more, reaching out to people in the industrial Midwest,” he said. “We’ll see later on about the presidential race. But we are thinking about it for the first time seriously.”
