With Ohio Senator following the former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon and former lawyer Eric Holder to the exits, explained more Democrats about a vec ka that they will not run to president than those who said they are coming.

“I just wish there were more middle-westerners,” later Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) Said on Thursday. “I’m more depressed by the news that Sherrod doesn’t come in but anything else.”

Brown never polled in the top level of primary competition. But for many Democrats, his resignation was a frightening reminder of the party’s collapse in the Midwest in 2016, when Donald Trump swept through the Rost belt, once democratic states fled red on their way to the White House.

“I strongly regret that Brown does not come in the race because I believe that if we are going to win, we must concentrate on four states, and that is Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan,” said former New Mexico Gov . Bill Richardson, who ran for President 2008. “It’s my biggest concern that Midwest is not represented in the race.”

The exception, he noted, is Klobuchar and says, “Sherrod comes out helps her. This is her big chance, I think, to shine, to get there, to become a serious top candidate.” 19659004] Brown, a populist who toured early nomination states that derived “work of dignity” is considered potentially drawing support from Biden, as well as from accompanying progressive Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). But for Biden, who approaches her own decision to run in 2020, Brown’s recall followed Bloomberg’s resignation as a second part of good news this week.

“I would think of all candidates or potential candidates running Sherrid’s decision not to run would be most significant to Biden,” said former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, who supports Washington Gov. Jay Inslee for president and added that Brown’s resignation “makes it a little easier for me to be for Inslee”.

“I mean that Biden talked about the dignity of work forever,” says Strickland. “I think Sherrod and Biden would have a similar message regarding the working unions.”

Antjuan Seawright, a South Korean-based democratic strategist Worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, said: “I do not believe in our modern policy that any candidate can clear the field itself and I think it is a dangerous thought process, because each voter deserves to be heard and persecuted. “But he added:” The Biden vehicle takes up a lot of space on the political highway, which leaves little room for other cars to travel. “

But there are low-profile democratic contenders who could also benefit from Brown’s absence, including Democrats with bands to the Midwest and Mountain West, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg runs for president, and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and Rep. Tim Ryan in Ohio are considering both campaigns.

“It opens a lane for more centrist, more pragmatic people who might enter the competition – Joe Bidens, Steve Bullocks,” said Sean Bagniewski, chairman for the Polk County Democrats in Iowa, the first in the nation caucus state.

Still, for democratic caucus-goers in Iowa, Bagniewski said, “I don’t know if there is so much of difference” between coastal and Midwest candidates.

Trump succeeded in the region despite his lack of housing there. And in a democratic primary area that already has 14 candidates pointed out by four prominent democracies in some ways less on the primary constraints than the possibility of further expanding.

Former Colorado government John Hickenlooper announced on Monday that his run for president, and he is heading to Iowa on Friday. Former Rep. Beto O & # 39; Rourke in Texas is expected to be very well known, and several other Democrats are still considering it.

“With Sherrod Brown’s departure, the world is changing?” Said Hank Sheinkopf, a long-standing democratic strategist based in New York. “There are so many so-called populists in [the Democratic primary] that even a real populist like Sherrod Brown would get lost.”

In addition to Sanders, Warren and O & # 39; Rourke, he said, “From the Midwest and Central West, you have Hickenlooper, Klobuchar, and you have populists representing a stream of politics that very much … represents the policy” in the Midwest .

When they announced that they would not run, and Brown suggested that their absence would not leave an ideological hole in the primary campaign. Merkley said, “I think there are democrats now in the presidential election talking about the importance of addressing the major challenges we face”.

And in a more specific reference to the reasons he enchanted, Brown said: “We have seen candidates begin to take up the dignity of the labor struggle, and we have seen voters across the country calling for it – because dignity of work is a value that Unite all of us.

nor Democrats disagree to see their territory contract before its swells. Before Brown, Bloomberg, Holder and Merkley went out, billionaire Tom Steyer, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and former Massachusetts Gov Deval Patrick announced that they would not run to president, and Brown could soon return to 2020 circulation as a potential candidate for vice president.

“I think Brown is on the automatic VP list,” said Dan Sena, a former executive director of the Democratic Congress Campaign Committee.

Still, Brown’s resignation from the presidential field seemed to hit harder than most. The Third Third Way, said Thursday, he was “sad for Sherrod Brown.”

“I’m a little worried,” he said. “Bullock probably comes in and Amy is in. But if you think the most important thing for Democrats is to win three Midwestern states or two plus Pennsylvania … it would be good if we had a little more Midwestern blood in the race.” [19659004] Holly Otterbein and Nolan McCaskill contributed to this report.
