How come Sherrod Brown(D-OH) did not enter the 2020 US Presidential Race?

Sherrod Brown(D-OH), Elizabeth Warren(D-MA) and Bernie Sanders(D-VT) are the 3 top tier 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates that come from a State that currently has a Republican Governor.
If Warren(MA) and/or Sanders(VT) leave the US Senate, Democrats can win back MA and VT in the 2021/2022 special election.
If Brown(OH) leaves the US Senate Election, Democrats will have a tough time winning back OH in the 2022 special election unless Tim Ryan-D runs.

1. Just looked up his voting record

Sanders votes with Sherrod Brown 84 percent of the time. A few differences, including on some bigger votes but not that much different.

2. I brought up Sherrod Brown because he would have an easier time winning the electoral college vote.

Brown will perform better than Sanders in IA,MI,OH,PA,and WI.
Brown is younger than Trump and Sanders.

6. If Sherrod Brown ran for President and won both the Primary and the General Election in 2020

Democrats are going to lose Democratic held US Senate seats in AL(Jones-D) and OH(VACANT- Brown-D)-DeWine-R appoints a Republican to Brown's OH US Senate seats.
Democrats are going to win Democratic held US Senate seats in-
DE(Coon-D)35
IL(Durbin-D)36
MA(Markey-D)37
MI(Peters-D)38
MN(Smith-D)39
NH(Shaheen-D)40
NJ(Booker-D)41
NM(Lujan-D)42
OR(Merkley-D)43
RI(Reed-D)44
VA(Warner-D)45
Democrats are going to win Republican held US Senate seats in-
AZ special(Kelly-D)46
CO(Hickenlooper-D)47
IA(Greenfield-D)48
ME(Gideon-D)49
NC(Cunningham-D)50

Brown-D would need to appoint a vice Presidential runningmate that could carry GA and NC.

7. At the time that was his thinking.

Too late for a do over.
I'd even vote for his wife, great lady.

8. Could Sherrod Brown run for President in 2024?

Donald Trump-R is barred from running for a third term in 2024.
Bernie Sanders-D is unlikely to run for a second term in 2024 due to his age.
Sherrod Brown's OH US Senate seat is up for re-election in 2024. Sherrod Brown can run for President and let Tim Ryan run for the US Senate in 2024.

4. Wish he had. He's an undisputed "progressive" who would not promise the world to get votes.

5. I think he considered it but we would have

lost our Senator. I liked Eric Swalwell but he didn't get any traction, too low energy I guess for today.
