8. He was never in

 

But he probably shouldn’t run because his Senate seat is too valuable.

Ah... I remember he was one of the choices in DU's "pick-a-candidate" poll/game. Then he "dropped out" and his name and photo were removed.

I wonder what that was all about.

20. See post 12 ... is there more (or less) to it?

 

https://www.democraticunderground.com/1287344349#post12

I recall seeing his icon as a user-selected preferred candidate back when the "choose-your-favorite" poll was first started. Also, scroll to the bottom of this page: https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=candidates

The following have either officially declared that they are not running for president, or are out of the race (no longer actively campaigning, suspended campaign, officially ended their campaign, etc.): Sherrod Brown, Bill de Blasio, Kirsten Gillibrand, Mike Gravel, John Hickenlooper, Jay Inslee, Seth Moulton, Beto O'Rourke, Tim Ryan, Eric Swalwell

Honestly, I have no preference one way or the other. But it seems as though he "declared" that he had no interest. And with that in mind, it makes little sense (or seems highly unlikely) that he'd un-declare his non-interest and enter a race he previously rejected.

5. Brown's excellent, I had hopes for him when he entered months ago

 

but then he dropped out. Didn't seem to have the fire for it.

Many believe Brown's needed more in the Senate; some claim HRC should have picked him for VP in '16.

Is he planning to run again?

9. Brown's 'Dignity of Work' tour, public forums, late night shows--

 

with his presidential campaign he started off with a bang and then collapsed quickly, even if he didn't 'formally enter.'

'Nothing to see here' my foot, he disappeared fast after considerable effort and raising people's hopes.

TIME, March 7, 2019, 'Sherrod Brown Presidential Campaign 2020.'

'Sherrod Brown’s decision to forgo a bid for the White House is the first big surprise of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.'

The Ohio Democrat was taking all the necessary steps to assemble a competitive bid. Brown had enlisted a savvy veteran of Iowa as a campaign manager-in-waiting, tapped a star adviser to Hillary Clinton’s orbit to lead efforts in New Hampshire, and his plan to play up his working-class cred gave him a fighting chance in Nevada, where the culinary workers’ union reigns supreme. In pitches to activists and donors alike, Brown was preaching his ability to retake the Midwest.

In interviews he sounded every bit the contender, framing himself as a lifelong progressive who could get white, working-class voters to pull the lever for a Democrat. “I don’t have to show my progressive bona fides. I am who I am. But I’m also going to win the industrial Midwest,” he told TIME in January, riding in his Ohio-made Jeep from Cleveland to Lordstown, Ohio, for a January union-hall conversation with soon-to-be-out-of-work automakers...

10. I know Sherrod; I know his daughter Liz (former ODP Director)...

 

...I know the people in his financial brain trust who would be called upon for early support. I don't care if he "sounded" to a reporter like he was preparing to run; he wasn't.

On the bright side, Brown has said over and over again he doesn't want the White House.

I mean to say, if by some chance he actually wins the presidency, we'll probably lose that senate seat for good.

35. I think he's a decent guy. I like him. Being from Ohio's good.

 

But he's not poll tested for the primaries so who knows how he'll fare.

My guess is that he'd poll well and be a very fine candidate. Maybe as veep for Warren?

it's too late. We're only a month or two from having everybody with less support than Sen. Harris being swept off the debate stage, and Brown can't gin up enough support in that time.
