Columbus Dispatch: Sherrod Brown to campaign in Iowa, New Hampshire, and two other early voting states
If Brown enters the race, he would have one of the more extensive resumes of any potential candidate with the exception of former Vice President Joe Biden. He has served two full terms in the U.S. Senate, was a member of the U.S. House from 1993 through the end of 2006, and was twice elected Ohio secretary of state in the 1980s after four terms in the Ohio House.
He hopes his theme of “dignity of work” would resonate with blue-collar Democrats, who have been a key part of his base in Ohio. His reasoning: If it works in a swing state like Ohio, it will work nationwide.
