During his tour last week of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown was asked how he would respond to attacks from President Trump.
The Ohio Democrat didn’t shrink.
The president “talks like an idiot,” Brown said. “And I don’t think that serves anybody well to answer every time he says something stupid, or something that’s a lie.” Democrats, he added, should “talk about the issues that matter to the public.”
He added, “Some national Democrats, they’ve created this sort of binary choice that you speak to the progressive base or you talk to working-class voters of all races. I don’t think it’s an either/or, I think you do both. That’s how you win in the heartland.”
Brown said he’ll likely make a decision on a presidential run in March.
